Our BookClub — The BookBums
We meet the third Friday of each month at 7:15 pm at the home of UUFN member, Udda Anderson to discuss a book that a member has suggested. The recommender then shares their research on the background of the book and author and leads the discussion, which often results in lively debate. After a general analysis of the work, our conversation sometimes flows into personal applications of the book’s ideas. Check our Reading List below to see this year’s selections and notices about special meetings and field trips. For more information, contact Udda directly. You can find her contact information on the Congregation Builder Website. Or to ask the UUFN Office to put you in touch, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 302.368.2984 during office hours.
