Faith and Fiction

Enjoy Reading?
Join Faith & Fiction

1st Monday of each Month beginning October 1st!

 

Faith & Fiction is a long standing Book Club at First Presbyterian Church.   We gather on the first Monday of each month in room N123, from 7:30 - 8:30 p.m.,  from October to April to discuss a book that we have all read within the past month or so.   Our discussions are informal and are lead by one of our members.   We’d love to have you join us, -- and you do not have to be a member -- just someone who loves a good read!  So come join us, -- we welcome you and your thoughts.   Our first book for this coming season is:

Red Notice,  a memoir by Bill Browder.    This is a very readable and interesting story of Bill’s experiences in the emerging financial markets of the Soviet Union in the 1990’s.  It is filled with intrigue, murder and a fight for justice.   Interestingly enough, parts of this story are still in our news today!   All our books can be found in the public library system and are also available on Amazon.  Al May will lead this discussion.  Start reading now so you will be ready for our October 1st meeting!.  

Here is our reading list for the season:

October 1, 2018 -  Red Notice by Bill Browder.   Al May,  Discussion Leader

November 5, 2018 - The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead.   Shirley Barbel, Discussion Leader
