Geaghan Brothers Brewing aims for world record

BANGOR - Coming together to have a beer is how many around the world celebrate special occasions. The 2018 Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce Annual Awards Dinner – set to take place on Jan. 10 - will be no exception this year … with a twist. Or a pop-top. 

BANGOR –The Bangor Public Library hosts another Bangor Reads! community event this January.

The theme of this year’s Bangor Reads is aging in place and in literature. This year’s selection is the award-winning and critically-acclaimed “A Man Called Ove” by Fredrik Backman. This Swedish bio-novel has taken the world by storm and we welcome the opportunity to use it as a discussion starter for conversations around aging, community, immigrants, neighbors and our influence on the people around us.

Book discussions, film screenings, trivia nights and more will take place at the Library and in our community as we celebrate the unexpected, and sometimes life-altering, encounters with people different from ourselves and the true meaning of friendship and family.

We will be having both a book discussion and two film screenings with facilitated discussions. The film is in Swedish.
