We had a great meeting in January. There have been some changes to dates and books for February.
In February we will be reading The Ninth Hour by Alice McDermott (Selected by Pat)
On a dim winter afternoon, a young Irish immigrant opens the gas taps in his Brooklyn tenement. He is determined to prove—to the subway bosses who have recently fired him, to his badgering, pregnant wife—“that the hours of his life belong to himself alone.” In the aftermath of the fire that follows, Sister St. Savior, an aging nun, appears, unbidden, to direct the way forward for his widow and his unborn child.
The meeting will be Feb 20 at 7:30 in the church Library. Those who wish can meet at the Dizz beforehand for dinner.
NOTE: Both the book and date for February have changed.
There will be no meeting in March.
The April Meeting will be on April 10th where we will discuss The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglas by Frederick Douglas (Selected by Gus)
Born into a family of slaves, Frederick Douglass educated himself through sheer determination. His unconquered will to triumph over his circumstances makes his one of America’s best and most unlikely success stories. Douglass’ own account of his journey from slave to one of America’s great statesmen, writers, and orators is as fascinating as it is inspiring.
Looking forward to seeing you in Feb.
