If you enjoy reading well-written books and then talking about them with others, the First Presbyterian Church Book Club is for you.
The book club is currently in its second year and the members reading everything from secular to religious, fiction to non-fiction. As long as it's worth reading, the book club will read it.
The club meets every first Wednesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. in the downstairs chapel of the church. So far this year, the members have read "To Kill a Mockingbird" and "Two Old Women" and the book for the June 5 meeting is "The Civility Solution: What to Do When People Are Rude".
"I do encourage people that maybe if they haven't read the book completely, or haven't read the book, to still come," said Connie Miller, a Book Club Church Member. "I think people get worried that they haven't read the book or they didn't finish it. I find that that's not a limitation on what you can contribute to a good conversation and that's what this is all about - a good conversation."
Miller said when the club first began, she would pick the books and lead the discussions. But now, if you have a book you'd like the club to read, you can lead the discussion on that month's selection. The book club typically takes a break for summer vacation, but will start up again in September.
