AUGUSTA — A group discussion of the two books chosen for A Capital Read 2015 will take place at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 26, in the program room of Lithgow Public Library’s temporary location at the Ballard Center, 6 East Chestnut St. The community is invited to read two works by travel writer and novelist Paul Theroux for A Capital Read 2015.

The novel “The Lower River” and non-fiction title “The Last Train to Zona Verde” both focus on the African continent and share similar themes.

The author event and book signing with Theroux will take place at 2 p.m. Saturday, May 30, at the University of Maine at Augusta’s Jewett Hall.

Copies of the books are available at the library’s, Bangor Savings Bank (Senator Way location), Viles Arboretum, and The Holocaust and Human Rights Center at UMA, while supplies last.
