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 next selection is The Night Watchman (464pp) by Louise Erdrich, winner of the 2021 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Amazon says, "Based on the extraordinary life of National Book Award-winning author Louise Erdrich’s grandfather who worked as a night watchman and carried the fight against Native dispossession from rural North Dakota all the way to Washington, DC, this powerful novel explores themes of love and death with lightness and gravity and unfolds with the elegant prose, sly humor, and depth of feeling of a master craftsman."

We'll meet on Tuesday, July 12, via Zoom

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.
