The book being read for the September meeting of the Book Group is Run, by Ann Patchett. Run is the story of an unusual Boston family. The parents are Irish Catholic. They have three sons – an older biological child and younger adopted twins, who are black. Each of the twins is gifted in his own way, but neither is interested in politics – which is their father’s passion. Neither is their older brother, who has in some way disgraced himself. A traffic accident on a snowy night sets into motion a chain of events which brings new discoveries to each of the family members – and to some who are not – not technically, at least – a part of the family at all.
We have the Ridley Library’s Book Club in a Bag feature, and have 8 books-and one CD-available to lend. The book is a fast read. Please speak to Rev. Judy about getting a copy to read or listen to.
We invite all who wish to do so, to come to the Monday, September 9th meeting of the Book Group at 7 PM, in the Deppich Room.
