Walker Book Group

December 8, 2019 | 5:30 PM

Join the Walker Book Group on Sunday, December 8 at 5:30 pm in Channing Hall. We will begin with a potluck supper followed by a lively book discussion. Newcomers are always welcome.

Bring a dish to share and a small contribution to cover beverages. Be responsible for cleanup if using Albany UU’s kitchen or be green and bring your own dishes and flatware.

We will discuss the National Book Award winner, The Friend: A Novel by Sigrid Nunez, described in the New York Times as “dry, allusive, and charming.”  The novel’s heroine inherits a Great Dane after the suicide of a friend. In this short philosophical novel, the heroine—a writer and academic—contemplates suicide, sexual harassment, literature, writing, and teaching as well as dogs.

We meet on the second Sunday of each month from September through June. For future updates, subscribe to the Walker Book Group egroup list at AlbanyUU-WalkerBookGroup@egroups.churchdb.com. Contact Martha Musser for further information at mussermartha@gmail.com.
