Reading Group

June 21, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 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, June 21, at 6:00 PM to discuss All Adults Here by Emma Straub.
 
Here is a description of the book:
 
When Astrid Strick witnesses a school bus accident in the center of town, it jostles loose a repressed memory from her young parenting days decades earlier. Suddenly, Astrid realizes she was not quite the parent she thought she’d been to her three, now-grown children. But to what consequence?
 
Astrid’s youngest son is drifting and unfocused, making parenting mistakes of his own. Her daughter is pregnant yet struggling to give up her own adolescence. And her eldest seems to measure his adult life according to standards no one else shares. But who gets to decide, so many years later, which long-ago lapses were the ones that mattered? Who decides which apologies really count? It might be that only Astrid’s thirteen-year-old granddaughter and her new friend really understand the courage it takes to tell the truth to the people you love the most.
 
In All Adults Here, Emma Straub’s unique alchemy of wisdom, humor, and insight come together in a deeply satisfying story about adult siblings, aging parents, high school boyfriends, middle school mean girls, the lifelong effects of birth order, and all the other things that follow us into adulthood, whether we like them to or not.”
 
We look forward to meeting in-person again! 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)
