UUCM Book Clubs: August/September 2019

Women Who Read Book Club

No meeting in August. Meets next on Monday, September 9 at 7:00 PM. Gather at UUCM in the Community Room (the first room you enter from the outside door) to discuss September’s book, The Sparrow by Maria Doria Russell. Regrets only to billsuemcknight@me.com. If you have questions about the Women Who Read book club, please contact Christy Dachelet.

Men’s Book Club

August meeting has been cancelled. Meets next on Tuesday, September 10 at 7:00 PM. Gather to discuss September’s book, The Bell Jar (F) by Sylvia Plath. A classic book, her only novel. The Bell Jar chronicles the crack-up of Esther Greenwood: brilliant, beautiful, enormously talented, and successful, but slowly going under — maybe for the last time. Sylvia Plath masterfully draws the reader into Esther’s breakdown with such intensity that Esther’s insanity becomes completely real and even rational, as probable and accessible an experience as going to the movies. Such deep penetration into the dark and harrowing corners of the psyche is an extraordinary accomplishment and has made The Bell Jar a haunting American classic.  If you have questions, please contact Adam Schenck or Gary Charles. New members are always welcome.

Monday Morning Book Club

Meets on Monday, August 19 at 11:00 AM. Gather at UUCM to discuss August’s book, Gentleman in Moscow by Armor Towels. Please direct any questions to Bev Montgomery. New members are always welcome.
