The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

by Rachel Joyce

Discussion led by Pat Corrigan


The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce (2012, 384 pages). Harold Fry, recently retired, lives in a small English village with his wife, Maureen, who seems irritated by everything he does. One day is exactly like the next—until Harold gets a letter from a woman he hasn’t heard from in twenty years. Her message propels him out of his house, away from his humdrum life, and into an improbable, transformative journey. This first novel by playwright Rachel Joyce, longlisted for the Man Booker Prize, has been compared to John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress, described as “Walter Mitty skydiving,” and praised as “original, subtle, and touching.”


Our informal gathering will be at the newly re-opened library. Refreshments will be served. 


Copies of the books may be picked up at the library. Please contact or 860-354-2455 to sign up or for more information.

The Sherman Library

Children’s Book Campaign

Purchase a book to commemorate the new

Sherman Library!


Today libraries are much more than just books but it’s hard to imagine a library without them.  Books educate, enrich, entertain and shape us.


The Sherman Library wants the our building's bookshelves filled with new books. As new and fresh as our renovated, restored and expanded facility.


You can help us reach this goal!  Become part of the effort to “restock our shelves” by purchasing a book to add to the children’s collection. It’s a great way to honor or remember someone and be part of this momentous undertaking in our community.


It’s simple. Stop by the new library to choose from the books on display, select a new or classic title from our list, you make a suggestion of your choice or leave it up to us to decide. Children’s books can be purchased for $20.


Every book you buy includes a personalized bookplate with the words you request and will be on special display for a year.


Thank you for your support of the Sherman Library!
