- About Us
When we read, we get to walk around in someone else’s shoes. When we read, we expand our perspective and grow in compassion. When we read, we travel to places and times we will never get to visit. When we read with others, we are motivated and challenged in ways we might not be otherwise, plus we might make a friend or two.
Anyone of any age is welcome to come discuss the book of the month. You don’t even need to have read the book! The conversation is always stimulating and we welcome your contributions.
Check out our upcoming books and meetings!
December 5th - Julie Parnell will lead our discussion of Stories Behind the Great Traditions of Christmas by Ace Collins. The book is available on Amazon in hardback ($8.29) or paperback ($9.57). Julie assures us that you will read about some traditions you are familiar with and some you have never heard of. This should be a nice re-introduction to the season!
January 9th (the second Tuesday) - Helen Beeler has invited Gregory Funderbunk to tell us about his book The Mourning Wave. Greg grew up in the Memorial area and is now a pastor at South Main Baptist Church. He has written about three boys in an orphanage who survived the Galveston Flood when all of the other children and the nuns died. It sounds like a fascinating, true story, and we are delighted to have the author tell us about it. You can buy the book online, and we are told that the Corbindale Library has three copies.
