ST. LUKE’S BOOK CLUB
Our next meeting will be on Thursday, January 16 at noon when we will discuss Educated: A Memoir, by Tara Westover. Bring your lunch and a friend!
An unforgettable memoir about a young girl who, kept out of school, leaves her survivalist family and goes on to earn a PhD from Cambridge University.
Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Her family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when one of Tara’s older brothers became violent. When another brother got himself into college, Tara decided to try a new kind of life. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge University. Only then would she wonder if she’d traveled too far, if there was still a way home.
Come and join us for a simple dinner at 5 pm on Wednesday, January 8th in the Canterbury Room followed by a movie and discussion.
Call the Midwife: Cold Temps, Warm Heart
It is the bone chilling winter of 1963 in the East End of London with rolling blackouts and frozen milk on the doorstep. But even in the teeth chattering cold, OB/GYN nurse midwives are still going out on their rounds wearing traditional capes, not a warm jacket in sight. This is an after Christmas episode of an award-winning BBC period drama series. A sweet, sensitive drama about self-giving women in a difficult place and time.
LIVING THE QUESTIONS SERIES
The classes this year, Thursday’s at 10, will revolve around topical questions using the Living the Questions series. There are 21 lectures, first seven in the winter, beginning January 16, second seven in the summer and final seven in the fall.
