Women’s Book Group

October 2017 Book Club and Pot Luck Night

 

Hi Ladies,
The choice for the October meeting is “Rules of Civility” by Amor Towles.   The date will be chosen by the hostess.   Would someone like to volunteer for that meeting?
 The following is part of a summary of this book from  goodreads.com:
10054335
“On the last night of 1937, twenty-five-year-old Katey Kontent is in a second-rate Greenwich Village jazz bar with her boardinghouse roommate stretching three dollars as far as it will go when Tinker Grey, a handsome banker with royal blue eyes and a tempered smile, happens to sit at the neighboring table. This chance encounter and its startling consequences propel Katey on a yearlong journey from a Wall Street secretarial pool toward the upper echelons of New York society and the executive suites of Condé Nast–rarefied environs where she will have little to rely upon other than a bracing wit and her own brand of cool nerve…. etc.

About the Book Group…..

Our  ‘Women of the Church’  Book Discussion Group & Potluck meet
once a month from September to June. The book group is open to any woman who likes to read and laugh, and laugh we do!

Members can host us in their hoshadow_imgmes or we can meet in the church Fellowship Hall.  Everyone contributes a bit of their culinary capabilities each month and we feast together just before our discussions commense.   Our time together usually runs from 5:30-8:00 pm.

We read a wide variety of books chosen from suggestions from everyone in the group. Some titles from the past include Three Cups of Tea, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, The Road, Suite Francais, Here if You Need Me, The Double Bind, The Book Thief, Couldn’t Keep it to Myself: Testimonies of our Imprisoned Sisters, and Nobody’s Fool, just to name a view.

The Dorothy Alling Memorial Library assists us with obtaining multiple copies, so not everyone has to purchase a book.

Each month the book chosen has a facilitator, however, the discussion is very relaxed, and we encourage woman to join us even if they haven’t read the book. Watch the church bulletin, the bulletin board and this page for the date and location of each discussion.
