In February Pastor Eileen will begin facilitating a new book club, “PresbyReaders”. Every other month or so we will select a book from a wide range of literature. We will provide those who wish to participate with information about how to secure a copy of the book and after a couple of weeks notice to provide an opportunity to read the book we will meet. Depending on the length, subject and level of interest in the book, we will schedule either one or two discussion periods.
For our first book we will be reading “The Book of Longings” by Sue Monk Kidd. A work of historical fiction this book imagines “Ana” the fictions wife of Jesus. The author’s first book, “The Secret Life of Bees” was on the New York Times bestseller list for over 100 weeks. Of this book the NY Journal of Books says, “The Book of Longings is well named , well inspired and well imagined – a superlative effort from a writer at the top of her game.” In order to plan for our first meetings we would ask anyone who may be interested to let us know whether you prefer the PresbyReaders to meet (via Zoom) on Sunday afternoon at 4:00pm or Tuesday mornings at 9:30.
Consider joining us and let us know what time works best for you. You can call or email Michele in the office to let her know your interest.
