Join the Walker Book Group on Sunday, November 10 at 5:30 pm in Channing Hall. We will begin with a potluck supper followed by a lively book discussion. Newcomers are always welcome.
Bring a dish to share and a small contribution to cover beverages. Be responsible for cleanup if using Albany UU’s kitchen or be green and bring your own dishes and flatware.
We will discuss A Woman is No Man by Etaf Rum. This novel focuses on three Palestinian-American women: a protagonist who migrated to Brooklyn for an arranged marriage and a better life, her mother-in-law, and the oldest of her four daughters. Ms. Rum tackles the delicate task of telling the story of these oppressed and abused women without amplifying the anti-Muslim stereotypes prevalent in the United States.
We meet on the second Sunday of each month from September through June. In December, we will discuss A Friend by Sigrid Nunez and, in January, the UU common read, An Indigenous People’s History of the United States by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz.
