The Our Savior Book Club was started by Jane Nicklas in September 2010 as a fun way to get together. We take turns choosing books and meet on the first Thursday of every month to talk about our current book (and everything else!).
In addition to the fellowship, the best thing about our club is the opportunity to read books that we would ordinarily not think of on our own. We read classics, current bestsellers, mysteries, biographies, memoirs, nonfiction, funny books, sad books, even books about dogs!
Some of our favorites include “The Help”, “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society”, “The Thirteenth Tale”, “Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons”, “Sum It Up”, “Unbroken”, “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn”, “The Stupidest Angel”, “The Language of Flowers”, The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto”, “Stir: My Broken Brain and the Meals That Brought Me Home”, “Christmas Jars”, and “Next Year in Havana”. To date, we have read over fifty books!
Meetings are held in a member’s home, and whoever chose the book for that month provides refreshments and leads the discussion. We would love for you to join us; for information contact Carol Tucek at the church office.
