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)

Later that day, after trying to burn down the family home, Justin was taken into care.Justin was taken into care at the age of five after deliberately burning down his family home. Six years on, after 20 failed placements, Justin arrives at Casey’s home. Casey and her husband Mike are specialist foster carers. They practice a new style of foster care that focuses on modifying the behaviour of profoundly damaged children. They are Justin’s last hope, and it quickly becomes clear that they are facing a big challenge.
