Book Club meeting

Book Club will meet next on Saturday, April 6 at 10 a.m., in the church library. Our book will be Alice McDermott’s new Absolution. In fiction about the Vietnam War, women’s lives take place on the margins, but in this new highly acclaimed work, women are center stage. Tricia is married to a rising star attorney and her friend Charlene is a corporate spouse and mother of three. It is Saigon in 1963.  Sixty years later, the daughter of Charlene reaches out to Tricia to try to make sense and seek absolution for their project from that earlier day. This is a story of grace and folly, sacrifice and obligation — also a quest for absolution. We should have much to discuss in this book, already touted as one of the best of the year. Let Margaret know if you plan to come — and bring snacks.
