Book Club

St. Paul’s Book Club has been meeting since January 1998 and is for members and friends of St. Paul’s who are interested in reading books and would enjoy joining in group discussions.  The Book Club meets around noon on the third Wednesday of each month after Bible Study with the exception of December and over the summer.   Currently the room to meet is determined that day due to construction in the building.  Please bare with us!  All are welcome to bring a sandwich and join in the discussion.  The more we have the better the discussion.

 Members of the Book Club suggest a selection for the next month.  Selections include both religious and secular books and range widely in topic.  Amazingly, often the selections tie in perfectly with topics being discussed at Bible Study. There are so many good books written about worthwhile topics!

St. Paul’s book club will meet next on May 16 and we will be discussing the classic David Copperfield by Charles Dickens in accordance with our recent policy of reading a classic now and then. Bring a sandwich and join the discussion!

Some of the books we read in 2016/2017 are:  The Invention of Wings, by Sue Monk Kidd, Under the Wide and Starry Sky by Nancy Horan, and Gaining Ground by Forrest Pritchard which was selected by the library system as book of the year for 2016, Being Mortal by Atul Gawande, and Miller’s Valley by Anna Quindlen, The Truth According to Us, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Anne Barrows.  Most recently:  Breath Becomes Air, by Palanithi, Great Small Things by Jodi Picoult, Gift from the Sea by Ann Morrow Lindberg, The Nazi Officer’s Wife by Edith Hahn Beer with Susan Dworkin,  The Orphan Keeper by Cameron Wright, Digging to America by Anne Tyler, and Cannery Row by John Steinbeck.    We mix the old with the new and a classic now and then.
