About the Event
This month’s reading, The Stranger in the Woods by Michael Finkel is a true story about a man who lived alone in the Maine woods for 27 years – not out of anger at the world, but simply because he preferred to live on his own. In 1986 a shy and intelligent twenty-year old named Christopher Knight left his home in Massachusetts, drove to Maine, and disappeared into the forest. Based on extensive interviews with Knight himself, this is a gripping story of survival that asks fundamental questions about solitude, community, and what makes the good life. Read this book and join Ann Wirtanen, Director of the Winchester Public Library, as she leads a discussion to further our enjoyment and understanding.
