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 Girl Who Wrote in Silk
by Kelli Estes
Inara Erickson is exploring her deceased aunt's island estate when she finds an elaborately stitched piece of fabric hidden in the house. As she peels back layer upon layer of the secrets it holds, Inara's life becomes interwoven with that of Mei Lein, a young Chinese girl mysteriously driven from her home a century before. Through the stories Mei Lein tells in silk, Inara uncovers a tragic truth that will shake her family to its core — and force her to make an impossible choice.
Inspired by true events, Kelli Estes's brilliant and atmospheric debut serves as a poignant tale of two women determined to do the right thing, and the power of our own stories.
