The Vineyard Haven library will host the first “Islanders Read the Classics” on Thursday, March 3, at 7 pm at the the Katharine Cornell Theater. Philip Weinstein will discuss Toni Morrison’s “Beloved.” “Islanders Read the Classics” (IRTC) is a monthly series featuring speakers who have taught and have a passion for a specific literary work, giving a talk on a book of their choosing. Each month, the program will be held at a different Vineyard library. IRTC is sponsored by The Martha’s Vineyard Times, Islanders Write, and the Martha’s Vineyard Library Association.
