Burning Books

The Trinity book club, called Burning Books, meets at members’ homes throughout the year to read books selected by the group and enjoy each other’s company.  All interested readers are welcome to join the group. You do not need to be a member of the parish to join Burning Books, and you do not need to finish the book to attend the discussion.

Our selection for the summer is Apeirogon by one of our favorite authors, Colum McCann. Amazon says, " In Apeirogon, McCann unfurls the story of two fathers, one Palestinian and one Israeli, who have both lost their daughters to the violence that surrounds them."

The New York Times, where it was a bestseller, called it, " powerful and prismatic . . . Apeirogon is an empathy engine, utterly collapsing the gulf between teller and listener."

We'll meet on Thursday, September 15 at 7:30 PM

Other books we have read recently include “Naming Names” by Victor Navasky, a winner of the National Book Award. The New York Times wrote, “The moral issues raised by the Hollywood blacklist remain fearfully complex, and Victor Navasky confronts them with almost exquisite precision.
