Bromfield Book Club at Malabar Farm State Park
Every month we’ll read one of Bromfield’s novels and meet at Malabar Farm State Park for the “Bromfield Book Club.” Each session will include discussions of that month’s book, guest speakers, and tours of the estate and park grounds (including snacks and light refreshments). This club is designed for enthusiasts of Bromfield’s books, but also for those who haven’t read his work before.

If you’re interested in Bromfield, farming, conservation, or local history, you’ll be amazed by what you learn in the club. We’ll hold the book discussions in different rooms of the “Big House,” at the Visitor Center, the Pugh Cabin, and other areas of the estate. Get an intimate peak into the life of our most famous Mansfield resident. Contact Butler Branch Library at 419.883.2220, or the Lucas Branch Library at 419.892.2576 for more information and registration. The Club will meet at Malabar Farm Visitor Center. Space is limited – sign up soon!

Monday, Mar. 7 @ 6 PM – Discuss Wild is the River
Monday, Apr. 4 @ 6 PM – Discuss From My Experience

Monday, May 2 @ 6PM - Discuss Twenty-Four Hours
