St. Anne's Book Club: Bring a Book to Propose to the Group - Wednesday, January 23, 7:00 p.m.

posted 9 Jun 2014, 10:26 by Gary van der Meer   [ updated 13 Dec 2018, 11:02 ]
We occasionally hold an open evening on which you are invited to propose a book for the group to read. It should be one you have read. Please be prepared to say a few words or orientation about why you appreciated reading it. Then we will be back to you with the results - which books and which dates! We consider the availability of the book for purchase or borrowing, the ways the subject or contents might engage us in discussion and conversation, and the always welcome possibility of a visiting author. 

The St. Anne's Book Group is open to everyone: members of our community, friends, and newcomers who don't know anything about church. We talk about the book! We like to start with an overview by one of our participants who has read the book. We are very fortunate to have welcomed authors to join us as we talk about their book. It's great if you have read the book; you're also welcome if you have not read the book and want to know more about it. We like to make faith connections to the themes of the book - where possible. 

Our group is hosted by Marc Côté, publisher for Cormorant Books, and we are grateful for many insights into the world of authors, editors and publishing. [We choose our books by making every third or fourth session an open evening where people are invited to propose books they recommend.] 

We would be delighted to welcome you.

We hold our Book Group in the St. Anne's Ministry Centre, 276 Gladstone Avenue. Come for supper (potluck) at 7:00, or join us when we begin the discussion at 7:30.
