CALLING ALL BOOK LOVERS:
Our March selection is Redemption in Indigo by Karen Lord. This book is a retelling of a West African folktale. The club will meet on Monday, March 14 at 7:00 pm at Lee and Carolyn Carlsons’s home, 4705 Balmoral. Copies of the book are available at Amazon, Lawrence Public Library, and University of Kansas libraries.
Our April selection is Trauma and Grace: Theology in a Ruptured World by Serene Jones. The book is both a collection of stories of people who have endured and survived trauma, and an analysis of how they did it by the grace of God. Serene Jones will be in Lawrence on April 11 when we are scheduled to meet for the book discussion. If enough people enjoyed the book, we may attend her lecture instead. We will decide at the March meeting.
The First Baptist Book club reads a wide variety of works including fiction, non-fiction, biographies, memoirs, and poetry. Members suggest the books to be read. If you love books, please join us!
