Sunday Book Club Feb 3rd at 1pm in the PMC

Join us on Sunday, February 3rd, at 1 pm in the Parish Ministry Center to discuss Jon Meacham’s Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey of George Herbert Walker Bush. Meacham provides a fair and insightful biography of our forty-first president, made possible by his candid interviews with family members and friends as well as his access to Bush’s private White House diaries and numerous letters. This riveting biography helps us to understand the man as well as the era that shaped him along with colorful anecdotes depicting his relationships with people ranging from Gorbachev and Reagan to his sons George and Jeb and his role in the history of America for the past seven decades. It is a long book and we will discuss Part I to Part V on February 3rd and Part VI to VII at our next session.
