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.

Cora is a slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia. Life is hellish for all slaves, but Cora is an outcast even among her fellow Africans, and she is coming into womanhood; even greater pain awaits. Caesar, a recent arrival from Virginia, tells her of the Underground Railroad and they plot their escape. Like Gulliver, Cora encounters different worlds on each leg of her journey.
