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)

November Selection: 

The Handmaid's Tail

by Margaret Atwood

Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are valued only if their ovaries are viable. Offred can remember the days before, when she lived and made love with her husband Luke; when she played with and protected her daughter; when she had a job, money of her own, and access to knowledge. But all of that is gone now.... Funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing, The Handmaid's Tale is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and literary tour de force.


All are welcomed to join us to discuss this book on Thursday, November 29th @ 10am in the Kerrison Room.  Please join us!
