women's memoir series

2017 Summer Women's Memoir Series

Tuesdays | 7 PM | Jerusalem Room

Join us for a series of book talks focusing on memoirs written by people of faith. Hosted by Heather Gast and Samantha Gonzalez-Block and open to all women of the church. One copy of each book can be found in the newly revamped library annex upstairs in the Memorial Garden Overlook. Please pre-read the books to ensure lively discussion.

"My story is important not because it is mine, God knows, but because if I tell it, chances are you will recognize that in many ways it is also yours... it is precisely through these stories in all their particularity, as I have long believed and often said, that God becomes known to each of us more powerfully and personally." - Frederick Buechner
