The Book Group meets monthly to discuss a wide variety of books (history, fiction, mysteries and more) exploring instances of grace and spirituality. Meetings are usually on the third Wednesday of the month at 1:00 p.m. in the Library. A diverse selection of books has attracted a loyal following – “State of Wonder” by Ann Patchett, “Sarah’s Key” by Tatiana De Rosnay, “The Tiger’s Wife” by Tea Olbreht, “Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy” by Eric Metaxes, and “Caleb’s Crossing” by Geraldine Brooks.
Upcoming meetings are:
February 21st - The Burning Girl by Claire Messud Claire Messud is as accomplished at weaving a compelling fictional world as she is at asking the big questions: To what extent can we know ourselves and others? What are the stories we create to comprehend our lives and relationships? Brilliantly mixing fable and coming-of-age tale, The Burning Girl gets to the heart of these matters in an absolutely irresistible way.
March 21st - "Blood in the Water: A History of the Attica Uprising of 1971" by Heather Ann Thompson
