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 Thursday of the month from 10:00-11:30am at Greece United Methodist Church, 1924 Maiden Lane, Rochester 14626 (Office phone: 225-1880)

April Selection: 

The Daughter's Walk

by Jane Kirkpatrick


n 1896 Norwegian American Helga Estby accepted a wager from the fashion industry to walk from Spokane, Washington to New York City within seven months in an effort to earn $10,000. Bringing along her nineteen year-old daughter Clara, the two made their way on the 3500-mile trek by following the railroad tracks and motivated by the money they needed to save the family farm.  After returning home to the Estby farm more than a year later, Clara chose to walk on alone by leaving the family and changing her name. Her decisions initiated a more than 20-year separation from the only life she had known.
