St. James Book ClubbookClub

The next meeting of the St James Book Club will be on

Sunday, April 15, 2018 at 5:00 PM in the parlor.  We will be discussing the book, “Travels with Charley”  by John Steinbeck.  This book is a highly personal, funny, playful idiosyncratic narrative of Steinbeck’s journey across America. 

We welcome newcomers at any time. For more information, contact Joyce Day at (252) 752-6154. Please be sure to read the book before coming to the discussion.
Our May meeting will be on Sunday May 20, 2018 at 5:00 PM in the parlor.  Be sure to read (re-read) Jane Eyre’s classic, “Charlotte Bronte”  for that meeting!  Have a teen or young adult who recently read this one for school?  Have some conversations with them about it as well! 
In June, we will have Movie Night to watch Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rebecca”.  The movie is based on the February book club pick by Daphne du Maurier.  This meeting will take place in the Library  for movie viewing on  Sunday June 17, 2018 starting at 5:00 PM.

Happy Reading!
