Read, Learn, Share Book Discussion  (2018-2019)

Kathy Kellison and June Zellar

We are a group of book lovers who meet monthly to discuss a book. The books are chosen by the core group, and our hope is that anyone interested in a particular title will join us for that discussion. Come to one discussion, come to all of them.

We meet on the first Thursday of the month from October until June from 1:00 until 2:30 in the Robbins Room in the church building. The books are all available through local libraries or can easily be purchased.

We have chosen the following titles for the 2018-19 year:

October—There, There by Tommy Orange

November—The Soul of America by Jon Meecham

December—Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

January--The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot

February—Exit West by Mohsin Hamid

March—Choosing Civility by Pier Forni

April—The People’s House by David Pepper

May—Educated by Tara Westover

June—Sing Unburied Sing by Jesmyn Ward
