Christ Church Book Clubs

Updated: Dec 5, 2023

Women's Book Club

Our next book club will be Thurs. Jan 18th at 7:00. For the winter, we will be meeting online only (Zoom link below).

Our next book is The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Prenner. Hidden in the depths of eighteenth-century London, a secret apothecary shop caters to an unusual kind of clientele. Women across the city whisper of a mysterious figure named Nella who sells well-disguised poisons to use against the oppressive men in their lives. But the apothecary’s fate is jeopardized when her newest patron, a precocious twelve-year-old, makes a fatal mistake, sparking a string of consequences that echo through the centuries. Meanwhile in present-day London, when aspiring historian Caroline stumbles upon a clue to the unsolved apothecary murders that haunted London two hundred years ago, her life collides with the apothecary’s in a stunning twist of fate—and not everyone will survive.

Non Fiction Book Club

There will be no meeting during December.

We will meet on Tuesday, January 16, 2024 at 3:00 pm to discuss Madhouse at the End of the Earth: The Belgica's Journey into the Dark Antarctic Night by Julioan Sacton. This true survival story tells of the journey of the Belica under the command of Adrien de Gerlache to explore the uncharted end of the earth: Antarctica.

We will meet on Tuesday, February 20th at 3:00 pm. The book Rough Sleepers by Tracy Kidder has been nominated for discussion; selection of the February book will be finalized at our next meeting. Kidder follows the work of Dr. Jim O'Connell as he creates a community of care for the homeless living on the streets--the "rough sleepers".

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. 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 (
