Book Club

The St. Paul’s Book club meets every 2nd Tuesday of the Month at 7:00 PM in the Parish Library. This is an informal gathering of people who enjoy reading fiction—parishioners, friends, anyone who wishes to read, attend, and join the discussion of issues raised in the novels. Above all we value well-written works. Each year’s reading list is comprised of recent novels along with an occasional twentieth-century classic. Book selections each year include texts that make us travel in time and in space.

When we meet, our purpose is to reflect on the world and the characters we have come to know, not to offer “literary criticism” or a “book review.” Every meeting closes with a brief discussion of parish prayer concerns and a Prayer Book collect to keep us mindful of our common life as followers of Jesus.
