This is an open invitation to anyone attending Bower Hill Community Church, friends and family members, to join Bookworms, the Church Book Club. Reading and discussing books since 2001, members have enjoyed the variety of perspectives readers bring: from ‘loved it’, to ‘yuk’, to everything in between.
The group reads fiction, non-fiction, memoirs, biographies, really anything the group suggests. The conversation is assisted by online reader guides. Different perspectives create great discussions. All opinions are welcome. A list of the books read by the group is available on the church website. (https://www.bowerhillchurch.org/books-read). Check out the variety!
The group currently meets by Google Meets on the fourth Tuesday, January through November, at 1:30 p.m. We met in the evening at the church until Covid made meeting in-person impossible. Virtual contact is still comfortable for most attendees, although that could change in the future.
Here’s how it works. Members suggest books they think will be interesting and will create a lively conversation. We try to read current books readily available through the library circulation system. print copy, on tape, or via your tech device. This means reading new books, and very popular bestsellers are not considered until they are less in demand. We try to select books for several months making it easier for readers to get a library copy.
Please consider joining the group to discuss any book that interests you. Reading every book and attending all the discussions is not mandatory to be a member. Come try us out. We may ‘worm our way’ into your reading routine.
