BHPC Book Group

  • Meets Monthly in the Church Library   

We welcome all those who like to read and discuss books. We read an eclectic mix of both fiction and nonfiction as recommended by the Book Group participants. We like books that illustrate the lives of people that are different from our own, showcase a current topic, illustrate great writing, or inform us about outlook. Check the BHX, church bulletins and weekly emails for dates, times, and book selections. Everyone is welcome to attend the meetings, whether you have read the book or not. We are also interested in hearing your suggestions of books to read. Please contact Mary Hickey or Marilyn Allen for further information, or contact us below
