Book group is open to everyone!
Consider Joining Us

Do you know we have a book group at First Parish?
It is open to anyone and we are now meeting again in person on the last Monday of the month. The book for our June discussion is Saving Fish From Drowning by Amy Tan.

This is a time for church members as well as non-church friends to come together and engage with one another, build relationships, and share in a discussion of books that are of interest to people of various backgrounds. We have fun visiting, conversing about the book and sharing stories and would love to have you join us!

Questions?  Please call Mary Ellen Cook 978-500-0018.

June 28 “Saving Fish From Drowning” by Amy Tan 6:30 PM 23 Harold St.
With picaresque characters and mesmerizing imagery, Saving Fish from Drowning gives us a voice as idiosyncratic, sharp, and affectionate as the mothers of The Joy Luck Club. Bibi is the observant eye of human nature–the witness of good intentions and bad outcomes, of desperate souls and those who wish to save them. In the end, Tan takes her readers to that place in their own heart where hope is found.

We will take the month of July off to read our own summer books. We can share some of these at our August meeting.
On August 30 “The Book of Longings” by Sue Monk Kidd 7 PM. Location to be determined. 
Everyone is welcome to join us at these groups. Come for one or come each month.
