The Book Discussion Group meets at 7:30pm in the Social Hall on the second Mondays for a lively talk about our reading. Books are chosen by member consensus – both fiction and nonfiction, usually current, but we read some classics, too.  Everyone is welcome to join throughout the year.

For more information, contact Kaye Bonney or Leslie Vallerga.

For December 13, we are reading The Book of Longings by Sue Monk Kidd. Raised in a wealthy family in Sepphoris with ties to the ruler of Galilee, Ana is rebellious and ambitious, a relentless seeker with a curious mind and a daring spirit. Defying the expectations placed on women, she engages in furtive scholarly pursuits and writes secret narratives about neglected and silenced women. When she meets the eighteen-year-old Jesus, each is drawn to and enriched by the other’s spiritual and philosophical ideas..

This year we are reading:

  • October 4: The Lemon Tree: An Arab, a Jew, and the Heart of the Middle East  by Sandy Tolan
  • November 8: Here We Are by Aarti Namdev Shahani
