“Bad Stories” Book Group

Sun, Apr 15 • 9:00 am

Location TBA

Steve Almond, acclaimed author, and cohost of the Dear Sugars podcast with Cheryl Strayed is coming to our church on Sunday, April 22, 2018, to talk about his brand new book Bad Stories: What the Hell Just Happened to Our Country.

The church has purchased copies of his book in anticipation of Steve’s visit. Would you like to read it together to make his time with us deeper and richer? On the two preceding Sundays—April 8 & 15—come gather for a discussion of the book with Rev. Molly at 9 am. You can pick up your free copy of the book in the church office. And feel free to attend one or both sessions even if you don’t get a chance to read the book!

Almond describes the new work as his attempt to make sense of our historical moment, to connect certain dots that go unconnected amid the deluge of hot takes and think pieces. Almond looks to literary voices from Melville to Orwell, from Bradbury to Baldwin, to help explain the roots of our moral erosion as a people.
