Members and friends of the church meet the first Wednesday of the month in Hoffman Hall to discuss the book chosen for the month. The books include a wide spectrum of fiction and non-fiction bestsellers and classics. Books chosen are usually, but not always, written by a woman. We sometimes have outside presenters, including the authors of the books we are reading.
Wednesday, March 7 at 7:30 pm
Join us on Wed. March 7 in Hoffman Hall at 7:30 pm. To celebrate Women’s History Month, we will be reading A Woman’s Crusade: Alice Paul and the Battle for the Ballot by Mary Walton, a veteran reporter at the Philadelphia Inquirer. The true story of Alice Paul’s suffrage work reads like a novel, as Walton vividly describes how a group of determined women campaigned, picketed, marched and sometimes suffered imprisonment and force feeding. A highlight of the book is her compelling account of the first women’s march in 1913. A Woman’s Crusade also introduces us to Lucy Burns and dozens of other women who deserve to be honored for their courage. Dr. Mary Niles Maack will lead our discussion.
