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 Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History
by Robert M. Edsel and Bret Writter.
At the same time Adolf Hitler was attempting to take over the western world, his armies were methodically seeking and hoarding the finest art treasures in Europe. The Fuehrer had begun cataloguing the art he planned to collect as well as the art he would destroy. In a race against time, behind enemy lines, often unarmed, a special force of American and British museum directors, curators, art historians, and others, called the Momuments Men, risked their lives scouring Europe to prevent the destruction of thousands of years of culture.
