Book Club

 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 join us when you can. Call Jennifer Roberts Crittenden at 315-633-2817 and let her know you’re interested. She will give you information about the Zoom login.
