Reading Group

September 20, 2021 @ 6:00 pm

Exciting news! As per Bishop Wright, we are now able to have Book Club in the Parish Hall, provided that all in attendance have been fully vaccinated. If there is anyone who wants to attend but has not been vaccinated, please contact Jane Brubaker.


The Reading Group will meet on Monday, September 20, at 6 PM to discuss Oracle of the Ages: Reflections on the Curious Life of Fortune Teller Mayhayley Lancaster by Dot Moore with Katie Lamar Smith.
 
Here is a description of the book:
Winner of the Lilla M. Hawes Award for Best Local Georgia History
 
Mayhayley Lancaster was many things through her interesting life: lawyer, schoolteacher, political activist, fortune teller, numbers runner, and self-proclaimed “oracle of the ages.” In this new volume of creative nonfiction, the people who knew her reflect on her personality, her politics, and her passions, offering the reader a chance to delve fully into Mayhayley lore and legend. Oracle offers strange and often hilarious stories of the poor Georgia South in the post-Depression era, and how the eccentric Mayhayley’s charisma and mysterious powers cast a spell on all the people who knew―and inevitably misunderstood―her.

Everyone’s invited! Please bring $5.00 to help off-set the cost of pizza and wine. If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact Jane Brubaker (706-884-2838, janebrubaker@bellsouth.net)
