Westminster Book Club

Book Club to Read Lab Girl by Hope Jahren


You are invited to join the Westminster Book Club in November for discussion of the book Lab Girl by Hope Jahren.


Lab Girl is an illuminating debut memoir of a woman in science.  It is a moving portrait of a longtime collaboration, in work and in life, and a stunningly fresh look at plants that will forever change how you see and think about the natural world. Acclaimed scientist Hope Jahren has built three laboratories in which she’s studied trees, flowers, seeds, and soil. In addition to taking a close look at nature, Lab Girl tells an inspiring story about work, love, and the mountains that can be moved when those two things come together.


The Book Club will discuss Lab Girl on Wednesday, November 7, at 6:30 p.m. in Simmerman Lounge.  All readers are welcome.  While they last, books from the public library’s book discussion set are available for check-out in the church office, or you may borrow, download or purchase the book on your own.  Questions?  Contact Jan Davison, 277-0444 or .

The Westminster Book Club began years ago as one of the adult classes on Wednesday evenings.  The Book Club continues to meet during Faith Formation on the first Wednesday of each month, but it doesn't end when the program year ends -- the Book Club meets year-round.  The group, which currently has about 15-20 active members, gathers at 6:30 p.m. in Simmerman Lounge.

 Books from the Public Library's Book Discussion sets are used, however, readers are also welcome to download, borrow or purchase the books on their own.  Book selections include non-fiction, fiction, memoirs, historical novels, biographies and more.

Book Club members enjoy lively discussion while strengthening the bonds of fellowship and friendship.  All readers are welcome!
