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 September discussion is “The Four Winds” by Kristin Hannah.

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.

September 27 “The Four Winds” by Kristin Hannah 6:30 PM
Texas, 1934. Millions are out of work and a drought has broken the Great Plains. Farmers are fighting to keep their land and their livelihoods as the crops are failing, the water is drying up, and dust threatens to bury them all. One of the darkest periods of the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl era, has arrived with a vengeance.

In this uncertain and dangerous time, Elsa Martinelli—like so many of her neighbors—must make an agonizing choice: fight for the land she loves or go west, to California, in search of a better life. “The Four Winds” is an indelible portrait of America and the American Dream, as seen through the eyes of one indomitable woman whose courage and sacrifice will come to define a generation.
