Rowley Book Club reading ‘The Outermost House’ by Henry Beston

ROWLEY – Join us on Thursday, September 14 at 6:30pm for our first book discussion of the season to talk about The Outermost House: a year of life on the great beach of Cape Cod by Henry Beston, a classic of American nature literature.
In 1926, Henry Beston spent two weeks in a two-room cottage on the sand dunes of Cape Cod. He had not intended to stay longer, but he ended up staying for a year, meditating on humanity and the natural world, poetically chronicling the four seasons at the beach: the ebb and flow of the tides, the migration of birds, storms, stars, and solitude.
The library will have copies of the book available, so call or stop by to pick one up today. For more information, call the library at 978-948-2850, or email to sign up. The book club meets on the first Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m., and future titles are listed on our web site at
