Second Sunday Book Group

Sun, May 9, 2021 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

All are welcome at this monthly book group meeting. We read and discuss a wide range of books, all chosen by book group members.


We will meet ONLINE after the service on May 9, 2021 to discuss Born a Crime, by Trevor Noah. Celebrity comic T. Noah gives us a remarkably raw, honest, riveting memoir of growing up in apartheid Soweto So. Africa. His many vignettes of  surviving/thriving on gritty, chaotic streets of the ‘Hood’, in an abusive dysfunctional family, victim of grinding poverty, oppressive racial laws of Apartheid evokes in the reader concern, sadness, laughter & some OMG moments. The portrayal of his resolute, rebel, tough love Xhosa Mom is memorable. Their sharp funny dialogue is a treat. Each of the 18 chapters in 285 pages is preceded by a brief historical theme or conflict. His analysis of the Police State as cruel & irrational is incisive. The cast of characters and their antics is fascinating: meet the dog who betrayed him, the beauty who didn’t talk, the police on the take, the bullies on every corner, the denizens of the jail/court ‘game’ & the ‘crew’ of shady friends. No doubt a sequel is in our future.

We meet online after the Sunday service on May 9, 2021. Go to after the service ends and ask to join the Book Group breakout room. Get ready for a lively discussion with our Sunday group. Please join us; you will be a positive addition.


Our book for the June 12 meeting is The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared – a quirky, funny, rollicking tale. It was the best selling book in Sweden in 2010 and has sold over 5 million copies worldwide. It is a fun book.
