Sisters of the Spirit new book

On May 20, SOS will discuss the first seven chapters of News of the World by Paulette Jiles.

News of the World is an adventure story, filled with danger and incident; a western, meticulously researched and rendered; and a two hundred-page prose poem with poetry’s usual virtues of compression, resonance, beauty, and power. Set in post-Civil War Texas, the chaos of that place and time are vividly depicted, even as the story remains primarily one of character. Paulette Jiles has shown how rich and deeply imagined the historical novel can be. – NationalBook.org

Sisters of the Spirit (SOS) is a group for women who are interested in exploring their faith through book discussion and the shared experience of friendship. SOS meets weekly at 1 pm Mondays to discuss books from many genres, and all women are invited. The group meets for lunch beforehand at local restaurants to catch up, socialize, and enjoy each other’s company. Lunch is optional, but the entire group is welcome! Contact Kerry Angle, kkangle@prodigy.net for more information and to get on the email list to find out where lunch will be each week!
