Saturday Morning Book Club

 
Book

The Murphysboro United Methodist Church “Saturday Morning Book Club” meets the 3rd Saturday of every month at 10:15 a.m. in the church library. At each meeting, a book previously selected by the group is discussed. The group reads a variety of books, both fiction and non-fiction alike. Examples of past reading selections include: The Red Tent by Anita Diamant, The President’s Club by Michael Duffy and Nancy Gibbs, The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd, Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee and The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. 

Our book selections usually lead to lively discussions and a variety of opinions! The book selections are announced at least two months ahead of time, which gives us plenty of time to find and read the book. You’re invited to join us. Read the book, come to the meeting and join the lively discussion! Readers of all ages are welcome.

For more information, contact Emily Hargraves at ehargraves88@gmail.com.

Please come and join in the discussion
June 25 at 10:15 am
in the Church Library (Room 110)
as we talk about:
Good Omens
by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman
(Due to scheduling conflicts, our June
meeting will be 6/25 instead of 6/18.)
 
GoodOmens
According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world’s only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.
Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth’s mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.
