Women Transcending Boundaries Bringing Women of Faith Together after 9/11

January 1, 2017

Book Club

Filed under: — jeff @ 10:28 am

 Jennifer Crittenden points out books that are available to borrow. They've all been discussed at the Book Club.

Since one of WTB’s goals is to educate ourselves, getting involved in the WTB Book Club is a great way to do that. Many of the books focus on social issues or the impact of faith in our world today. You’ll learn a lot from the perspectives of women of many faiths and traditions. Plus, it’s just a great way to get to know others involved in WTB.

You don’t have to come to the Book Club every month, but come when you can. Call Jennifer Roberts Crittenden at 315-633-2817 and let her know you’re interested. Jennifer will give you the location of the current meeting. The Book Club generally meets on the evening of the 4th Monday of the month, but sometimes the days/times vary during winter. You’ll read the book beforehand and then discuss it at an informal evening gathering at one woman’s home.

Looking for a good book to read? For a variety of excellent choices, check our list of books discussed in past years by our Book Club here.
