misc_none 6:45 PM  -  7:45 PM Book Discussion: The Shape of Mercy Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

 THIS MONTH'S TITLE IS CHANGED!

This month's selection is The Shape of Mercy by Susan Meissner.

 The Shape of Mercy is vintage Susan Meissner: tender storytelling that keeps you hooked; living, breathing characters that capture your heart and madden you, too; and  a message of redemption that sticks with you. Meissner deftly weaves the stories of three women of vastly different generations, connecting them perfectly and crafting a  winsome, interesting, powerful read.”—Mary E. Demuth, author of Watching the Tree Limb and Daisy Chain

 Come share a lively discussion with us. Copies of the book are available for checkout at the front desk one month prior to the discussion date. No registration necessary.
