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 November 15 at 2:00. 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’ll be reading “Girl Waits with Gun” by Amy Stewart. We invite you to purchase your own copy of the book ahead of the gathering in November.
Summary of the book:
Constance Kopp doesn’t quite fit the mold. She towers over most men, has no interest in marriage or domestic affairs, and has been isolated from the world since a family secret sent her and her sisters into hiding fifteen years ago. One day a belligerent and powerful silk factory owner runs down their buggy, and a dispute over damages turns into a war of bricks, bullets, and threats as he unleashes his gang on their family farm. When the sheriff enlists her help in convicting the men, Constance is forced to confront her past and defend her family — and she does it in a way that few women of 1914 would have dared.
