"Shelf-Care" Discussion Group

Book cover Event Type: Library-sponsored Adult Event
Date: 10/8/2019
Start Time: 5:30 PM
End Time: 6:30 PM
Description:
 The Blue Hill Public Library’s "Shelf-Care" book group, cosponsored by Northern Light Blue Hill Hospital, will discuss the book "The Subtle Art of not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life," by Mark Manson, on Tuesday, October 8th at 5:30 PM. This 2nd Tuesday of the month group is led by licensed clinical social workers (LCSW) Dede Ragot and Patty Bergstrom.

In this book, Manson makes the argument "that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault... Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek."

Patty Bergstrom, LCSW, is a Behavioral Health Provider at Northern Light Health Blue Hill Primary Care. Dede Ragot, LCSW, is the social services director at Island Nursing Home in Deer Isle. Both are avid readers and enjoy discussion groups and learning from others.

This group is free and open to everyone. Copies of the book are now available to check out at the library. For more information, contact the library at 374-5515.
