Fiction and Fellowship Book Club
The Fiction and Fellowship Book Club offers participants a wonderful venue for intelligent and meaningful discussion of many different types of books. We read mysteries, history, novels, classics and new literature. Most books are provided via the Library Book Club program, but once in a while participants will agree to get their own book when the program does not provide it.
Discussion is led by Dr. Carole Policy, PhD. Dr. Policy is a retired college professor of English who has led book clubs in colleges, universities, and public libraries. As a member of St. Patrick Catholic Church, Carole has generously offered her expertise to lead our own book club.
The group meets once a month on the last Wednesday of the month from 2:00p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Hall of the Parish Center. Come grab a cup of coffee some homemade goodies and get ready to immerse yourself in the marvelous world of fiction.
Our next Fiction and Fellowship title will be:
The Human Stain
by Philip Roth
- The Human Stain by Philip Roth: A novel by Philip Roth set in late 1990s rural New England. Its first person narrator is 65-year-old author Nathan Zuckerman, who appeared in several earlier Roth novels, and who also figures in both American Pastoral (1997) and I Married a Communist (1998), two books that form a loose trilogy with The Human Stain. Zuckerman acts largely as an observer as the complex story of the protagonist, Coleman Silk, a retired professor of classics accused of racism, is slowly revealed. A national bestseller, The Human Stain was adapted as a film by the same name.
