Parish Book Club

The purpose of the Parish Book Club is to build community through the shared experience of great stories – and we do just that each month starting with a social hour at 6 pm and 6:30-8 pm discussion in the Arc (on the north side of 45th Street across from the parking lot) and via Zoom.  Everyone is welcome any time to read and discuss monthly book selections listed below. Our books are chosen by surveying the group.  Please email Lucy Petermeier, lpetermeier [at],  to join the email group.
