Book Club meets Jan. 23
St. George’s Book Club will meet at 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 23, in the Parish Hall, to discuss The Lace Makers of Glenmara by Heather Barbieri (2009). In the interests of truth in advertising, we should tell the gentlemen in the group that this is a novel about women (in case that’s not evident from the title). But the reviews suggest a poignant story of loss and rediscovery.
Join us for discussion. If you like, bring some snacks or a bottle of wine. Soda and coffee are always available. See you there!
