Summer Book Club Dates Announced
Several weeks ago, I announced the “picks” for our summer book club. The theme this year is “home.” What constitutes home? Is it a country, is it a house, is it the land, is it people? What does it mean to leave your home or to find a new home? What happens when one becomes “untethered” from what he or she considers to be home? I have chosen dates for us to gather and discuss these books and I would like to share those with you for your calendar:
June 16th This Tender Land, William Kent Krueger
July 14th The Dutch House, Ann Patchett
August 11th American Dirt, Jeanine Cummins
At this time, we are scheduled to meet at 6:00 pm in the Parlor on each of the above dates. I also have a “hold” on the Fellowship Hall for these dates in case we need room to spread out and practice social distancing. We also may need to consider using Zoom for virtual gatherings if we determine by then that it is unwise for us to gather together in the church.
For now, enjoy your reading! Books have the power to stretch us and challenges us— and can also entertain and distract us! Sometimes that can be a good thing.
All of the books are readily available on Kindle, so no need to leave your house if you are an e-reader. All books are also available through Amazon or can be ordered through Page and Palette, with curbside pick-up if requested. (Page and Palette may have copies in stock. Call to check!)
Blessings to all of you during this very odd time in the life of our church and
