December 27—no meeting On Thursday, January 24, 2019, at 7:00 pm in the Fireside Room at Faith Lutheran Church, we will discuss SURVIVORS CLUB—THE TRUE STORY OF A VERY YOUNG PRISONER OF AUSCHWITZ by Michael Bornstein and Debbie Bornstein Holinstat.  Working from his own recollections as well as extensive interviews with relatives and survivors who knew the family, Michael Bornstein relates his inspirational story with the help of his daughter Debbie.  Shocking, heartbreaking, and ultimately uplifting, this narrative nonfiction offers an indelible depiction of what happened to one Polish village in the wake of the German invasion in 1939.  You don’t want to miss this discussion, so please join us!

We meet as a group of women for the purpose of reading a book together. 
The bonus outcome is that we become friends and share our own life stories as they relate to the current author’s story.  
Now is a great time to jump in and join our group of mixed-aged women as we read & discuss one chapter at a time over an eight week time period.  
Wednesday Mornings: 10:30—NOON  Faith’s Fireside Room
Faith members who have read this book in the Pastor’s Book Study call it one of the best books they’ve ever read.  “Everyone should read it,” they say.  It also spent more than a year on the New York Times Bestseller List.   Riveting, honest, and humane, this remarkable book, which has already changed the national conversation on aging and death, shows how the ultimate goal is not a good death but a good life – all the way to the very end. 

  Dates/Time:  Starts on January 16th.  Meets once/week on Wednesday mornings from 10:30 ‘til noon. Cost:  $11 for the book, available at the ministry fair or in the office   Questions: contact Mary Toufar by EMAIL
