On Wednesday, October 14, we met at 7:00 PM on Zoom to discuss "Small Great Things: A Novel Paperback" – by Jodi Picoult (which 5 of us read) and "The Things We Cannot Say" by Kelly Rimmer (which 2 of us read). And 2 of us that read the Picoult book were unable to access the Zoom call.  So we chatted briefly about the 2 books and had a very entertaining discussion about our friends and family. 

During the next month, each of us will read the book we didn't read last month.  And if anyone wants to join us and is willing to jump in with both feet, read both (or either one of) the books.  Then on Wednesday, November 11, join us at 7:00 PM on Zoom to discuss both books. Expect lively conversation and good fellowship. 

Coming attractions will include "Moloka'I", by Alan Brennert, "Anxious People" by Fredrik Backman and "I Will Always Write Back: How One Letter Changed Two Lives" – by Martin Ganda.  And Sandy and Janet just picked up our copies of the second book in Rev. Robyn Brown's trilogy, "SAM. A Ghost Story".  Rev. Brown's visit to RPUMC to discuss "Ben" was a book club highlight, and we are hoping that (in time), she will be able to join us again. 

While we would love to be together, our Zoom meetings are a good alternative.  It is a delight to see friends we have not seen in a while.  If you like to read, a book a month is not too tough.  And if you don't finish in time, just jump on with your friends for the chitchat that always follows our discussion of the book.  Thank you.
