January 2021 Book Club Meeting
The January meeting of the Book Club will be on Wednesday, January 13, at 7:30 p.m. Connie Vecellio will lead our discussion of Go Tell It on the Mountain, by James Baldwin. “First published in 1953 when James Baldwin was nearly 30, Go Tell It on the Mountain is a young man's novel, as tightly coiled as a new spring, yet tempered by a maturing man's confidence and empathy. It's not a long book, and its action spans but a single day—yet the author packs in enough emotion, detail, and intimate revelation to make his story feel like a mid-20th-century epic. Using as a frame the spiritual and moral awakening of 14-year-old John Grimes during a Saturday night service in a Harlem storefront church, Baldwin lays bare the secrets of a tormented black family during the depression.”
If those who would like to attend would please RSVP to Adrienne Dominguez at firstname.lastname@example.org, we will provide a calendar invitation with log-in information for the meeting. Please note that the Book Club generally meets on the second Wednesday of each month.
