Our Book Club
The First Baptist Church Book Club is an informal gathering of people interested in expanding their horizons by reading and enjoying good fellowship.
We generally meet at the church at 11:30 AM on the fourth Tuesday of every month. Sometimes due to scheduling we meet on another Tuesday and will notify you of this change well in advance. Over lunch, the group discusses a current book previously selected by the club members. The range of literature includes fiction, non-fiction, and biography. New participants are always welcome.
The FBC Book Club will combine the November and December meetings because of the holidays. The group will meet at 11:30 AM on Tuesday, December 9, at the church. Everyone is welcome. The book for discussion is The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson. The author chronicles the decades-long migration of southern blacks to cities in the North and West to find employment and to escape the oppression and humiliation of the Jim Crow laws. Isabel Wilkerson has interviewed in depth three extended families who resettled in Chicago, New York City and Los Angeles
