Westminster Book Club


Book Club to Discuss The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry in May


You are invited to join the Westminster Book Club on May 2 for discussion of the book The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin.  This short-story-style novel follows the life of A.J. Fikry, a widower who owns a bookstore.  He’s lonely and drinks too much, until he decides to adopt a toddler abandoned in his bookstore. What follows is a narrative that is sometimes sentimental, sometimes funny, and always entertaining.

The Book Club will discuss this book on Wednesday, May 2, 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.  For more information, contact Jan Davison.




The Westminster Book Club began a few 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!
