Walker Book Group

January 12, 2020 | 5:30 pm

Join the Walker Book Group on Sunday, January 12 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 wine. Be responsible for cleanup if using Albany UU’s kitchen or be green and bring your own dishes and flatware.

We will discuss The Awakening by Kate Chopin. Set on the Louisiana Gulf coast at the end of the 19th century, this novel examines one woman’s struggle between her increasingly unorthodox views on the role of women and the prevailing social attitudes of the American South. This 1899 novel is one of the earliest to focus on women’s issues. It is a controversial landmark work of early feminism.

On February 9, we will discuss Chances Are…, a novel by Richard RussoThe group will select a book for March at our January meeting.

We meet on the second Sunday of each month from September through June. For future updates, subscribe to the Walker Book Group egroup list at AlbanyUU-WalkerBookGroup@egroups.churchdb.com. Contact Martha Musser for further information at mussermartha@gmail.com.
