WOMEN'S BOOK CLUB
The Women’s Book Club at St. Martin’s meets at the church the second Saturday of every other month at 10:00 am to discuss a selected book that is chosen by its members. We've read contemporary and historical fiction and biography.
The St. Martin’s women’s book group will meet next on Saturday, September 30, 2023, at 10 a.m., place to be announced. Our selection for that day is Steven Rowley’s The Guncle. The library has about 19 copies. Everyone should have a chance to read it in time! Please join us for a lively discussion.
“Patrick O’Hara has always loved his niece, Maisie, and nephew, Grant — from a safe distance. His Palm Springs home and reclusive lifestyle aren’t exactly welcoming to children. But when tragedy strikes, Patrick finds himself suddenly taking on the role of primary guardian.
Patrick has no idea what to expect, having spent years barely holding on after the loss of his own great love and managing a stalled career. He regrets his decision to take them in, until he starts to recognize that his outsize lifestyle and unusual life wisdom could bring about a season of healing that redefines their understanding of family, and finally lead Patrick back to himself.”
