Book Club - Page Turners

Debbie Babbage

Do you love to read? Then do we have a club for you!!! Page Turners is a monthly book club that has been together for over 10 years, dedicated to reading all sort of books—bestselling fiction and non-fiction, classic and contemporary. We search the best seller and book club lists to find unique, interesting, and great novels.

Page Turners puts together theme programs—Mystery Month, Drama (Plays) Month, Books to Movies, Going Back in Time Classics, and Young Adult Selections.

We participate in the yearly “If Everyone in Rochester Reads..” program, not only reading the book but also going to see the visiting authors. Our club has also organized a spin-off of the “If Everyone in Rochester Reads” program called GUMC All Church Reads—selecting a Christian, thought provoking, bestseller selection and scheduling an evening pot-luck and discussion night

We meet every 4th Tuesday of the month from 4:00-5:00pm at Greece United Methodist Church, 1924 Maiden Lane, Rochester 14626 (Office phone: 225-1880)

2020 September's Selection:

Becoming Mrs. Lewis

By Patti Callahan

In a most improbable friendship, she found love. In a world where women were silenced, she found her voice.

When poet and writer Joy Davidman began writing letters to C. S. Lewis—known as Jack—she was looking for spiritual answers, not love. Love, after all, wasn’t holding together her crumbling marriage. Everything about New Yorker Joy seemed ill-matched for an Oxford don and the beloved writer of Narnia, yet their minds bonded over their letters. Embarking on the adventure of her life, Joy traveled from America to England and back again, facing heartbreak and poverty, discovering friendship and faith, and against all odds, finding a love that even the threat of death couldn’t destroy.

Join us Tuesday, September 22nd at 4M at The Babbage's backyard. Social distancing and face masks required.  All are welcomed to attend, even if you haven't read or finished the book.  See you there!!ll
