Nonfiction Book Club

April 18, 2023 at 3:00 pm to discuss The Agitators: Three Friends Who Fought for Abolition and Women's Rights by Doroth Wickenden. In Auburn, NY, in the mid-nineteenth century, Martha Wright and Francis Seward were inspired by Harriet Tubman's rescues in the dangerous territory of Eastern Maryland and opened their basement kitchens as stations on the Underground Railroad.

We welcome all members of the parish and their friends to participate in the book club. Meetings will be held in a hybrid format with both in person attendance and via Zoom. Zoom information will be distributed near the date of the meeting. To get more information about the book club, to be added to our distribution list or to suggest a book for discussion please contact Jim Baroody (

Women’s Book Club

Thursday, April 27 at 7:00

We are reading Beloved by Toni Morrison. Sethe was born a slave and escaped to Ohio, but eighteen years later she is still not free. Sethe has too many memories of Sweet Home, the beautiful farm where so many hideous things happened. And Sethe’s new home is haunted by the ghost of her baby, who died nameless and whose tombstone is engraved with a single word: Beloved.

We will offer this meeting in a hybrid format, in person and Zoom. For additional information please contact Suzanne Lee ( )
