CHESHIRE - The Cheshire Public Library’s Cheshire Cats Classics Club December meeting, with discussion focused on Ernest Hemingway’s book "For Whom The Bell Tolls" will be held at 7 p.m. Dec. 11.

"This book, published in 1940, tells the story of Robert Jordan, a young American in the International Brigades attached to a republican guerrilla unit during the Spanish Civil War," according to a release. "As a dynamiter, he is assigned to blow up a bridge during an attack on the city of Segovia. Hemingway biographer Jeffrey Meyers writes that the novel is regarded as one of Hemingway's best works, along with 'The Sun Also Rises,' 'The Old man and the Sea' and 'A Farewell to Arms.'"
