Feel free to bring your lunch. Dessert and beverages provided. Please join us for a Community Read of Look to the Mountain by LeGrand Cannon, Jr. One of the most popular and enduring novels of the last century, Look to the Mountain is the epic story of two young settlers who start a new life in the foothills of New Hampshire's White Mountains on the eve of the American Revolution. They learn to survive amid the struggle in what was then a harsh and unforgiving landscape, forging a bond between both them and their adopted homeland. A critical and commercial success when it was first published in 1942, LeGrand Cannon, Jr.'s novel was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize and translated into numerous languages throughout the world. It has sold over one million copies through various editions and has never been out of print. Seventy-five years on, Look to the Mountain is still a definitive American novel, offering a captivating glimpse of life at the edges of the original colonies, and the grit and determination of the earliest New Englanders.
Everyone in Meredith is invited to read this book. Free copies are available at the library to take and pass around. We also have numerous copies available to be checked out. Just ask at the front desk. We will have two lectures reflecting on this book. One from the Native American perspective and one from the colonists' point-of-view.
