Weekend Groups

Book Discussion Group

Throughout the year, we host a series of Book Discussions on Sundays. These events feature a popular book, usually from the New York Times Bestsellers List – and provide an opportunity to discuss the book in a casual setting with a facilitator to help guide the discussion. Everyone is welcome! 

Our next book discussion will be August 23 at 1:30. We will be gathering on Zoom so reach out to Pat at [email protected] to receive the meeting ID and password ahead of the class. We do have some of the books available at the church for $8. Connect with Pat and will have a book ready for you to pick-up on the weekend OR we can mail you the book (cost of the book + postage.) You can also find a copy on Amazon and Christianbook.com.

Summary of the book:

Fifteen-year-old Lina is a Lithuanian girl living an ordinary life — until Soviet officers invade her home and tear her family apart. Separated from her father and forced onto a crowded train, Lina, her mother, and her young brother make their way to a Siberian work camp, where they are forced to fight for their lives. Lina finds solace in her art, documenting these events by drawing. Risking everything, she imbeds clues in her drawings of their location and secretly passes them along, hoping her drawings will make their way to her father’s prison camp. But will strength, love, and hope be enough for Lina and her family to survive?
