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 633-2817 and let her know you’re interested. Jennifer will give you the location of the current meeting, or you can find it in the current newsletter or here on the website. You’ll read the book beforehand and then discuss it at an informal evening gathering at one woman’s home.
The Book Club generally meets on the 4th Monday evenings but sometimes the days/times vary during winter.
