DOVER- All are invited to attend a reading and discussion of “New England Uncovered,” a free book discussion series sponsored by the Vermont Humanities Council and the Dover Free Library. Discussions will be hosted by the Dover Free Library at the library on Wednesdays, beginning at 7 pm. The site is ADA accessible.

July 24 - “Peyton Place” by Grace Metalious

August 7 - “Affliction” by Russell Banks
