All are invited to join the Fourth Monday Book Group on Zoom. The book group meets on the 4th Monday at 10:00am (book group does not meet in December). Just read the chosen book and join us ready for discussion. Listeners are always welcome too. Books are selected by the group and include a variety of fiction and nonfiction titles. See below for upcoming Zoom book group meetings. For additional information including Zoom meeting details, contact Shirley Solberg by email.

December Book: No Meeting

Our pre-pandemic tradition was to skip meeting in December which usually has enough activity without adding a book group discussion. This year the fourth Monday will be the day after Christmas, hardly a time most of us need to be preparing for or signing into a Zoom meeting.

In brief: No meeting in December.

January Book: Shunned: How I Lost My Religion and Found Myself by Linda A. Curtis

 Leader: Alan Dorway

At the beginning of a new year we travel with Linda Curtis, author, teacher, and keynote speaker on her spiritual journey spanning Oregon, Illinois, and California.

From the back cover: “This is an unforgettable story from a brave and beautiful woman who has turned her tragic experience of being shunned into an inspiring opportunity to create and claim a life of integrity, joy, and purpose.”    

February Book: The Dictionary of Lost Words by Pip Williams

 Set in the early twentieth century at the height of the women’s suffrage movement, this unique novel interweaves the birth of the multi-volume Oxford English Dictionary and the coming of age of fictional Esme.

She grows up motherless, fascinated and engulfed by the work of her father and his fellow lexicographers. In the words of Library Journal: “Enchanting, sorrowful, and wonderfully written, the book is a one-of-a kind celebration of language in our lives. A must have.”
