Cathedral Book Store
WE ARE EXCITED TO WELCOME BACK
We are pleased to announce a new program starting in September!
A COMMUNITY READING GROUP WILL MEET MONTHLY:
On first Wednesdays from 6:30-7:30 pm readers from the church parish and the broader community will gather at the Cathedral Book Store to discuss contemporary books and issues from a theological perspective. Discussions are facilitated by various clergy and lay teachers. We will not meet during Lent.
The Cathedral Book Store is in the Cathedral of St. Philip located at 2744 Peachtree Road, Atlanta, GA 30305. All are welcome!
This is not a Book Club. This is a group for all who, like C.S. Lewis, read to know we are not alone. Let's talk about what we've read! Come join us and add to the discussion.
For more information call Kerith at 404-237-7582 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Schedule for the Fall includes the following discussions:
November 4 - A LAND MORE KIND THAN HOME by Wiley Cash
Led by Rev. David Wagner
Families are supposed to shield children from the horrors of the world, but one Sunday nine-year-old Jess Hall watches as his autistic brother is called into a little church in the mountains of North Carolina. What happens next forces Jess to question everything he once believed. Clem Barefield, the local sheriff, arrives to find a group of charismatic believers who are unwilling to utter a word about the things Jess has seen. At the center of the mystery is Carson Chambliss, a snake handling ex-convict turned preacher whose past is just as mysterious as the power he claims to possess. Told by three resonant and evocative characters-Jess; Adelaide Lyle, the town midwife and moral conscience; and Clem Barefield, A Land More Kind than Home is a literary thriller, thick with characters connected by faith, infidelity, addiction, and a sense of hope that is as tragic as it is unforgettable. These are masterful portrayals, written with assurance and truth, and they show us the extraordinary promise of this remarkable first novel.
December 2 - For the December 2nd meeting, we’ll be reading and discussing EVENSONG by Gail Godwin, facilitated by Sheryl Paylor. A bestselling novel by a distinguished author brings to life the people of a small Smoky Mountain town and a woman whose world is indelibly altered by them. Beautifully written and filled with the insight and compassion Godwin is known for, Evensong is about family, the sometimes uncomfortable bonds of marriage, and the quest for religious faith. We will continue to meet in the Walthour Library at 6:30 PM. Please join us!
January 6 - WARMTH OF OTHER SUNS by Isabel Wilkerson
Led by Rev. Martha Sterne & Dr. Catherine Meeks
In this epic, beautifully written masterwork, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson chronicles one of the great untold stories of American history: the decades-long migration of black citizens who fled the South for northern and western cities, in search of a better life. From 1915 to 1970, this exodus of almost six million people changed the face of America.
