women's book study

On the 2nd Saturday of each month, an enjoyable group of women meet to discuss a book previously recommended by members or selected from a book list. The group consists of those married or single and ranges from moms, empty nesters, and retirees to those still working. As all are on their journey through life, our paths intersect to read and discuss books while sharing each other’s life events, interests, and concerns. Come join us!

The December book is A House Without Windows by Nadia Hashimi. Zeba has always been the perfect wife and mother, but when her husband is found brutally murdered, she is jailed for the crime, much to the astonishment of her children. As Zeba awaits trial, she gets to know the other women in her cell, who have also suffered great misfortunes and violence at the hands of men. To these women, jail is more of a haven than a punishment, a safe place away from a world where women are treated so cruelly. A necessary, moving look at the lives of Afghan women and the power of sisterhood, A House Without Windows will lift your spirits and shatter your heart.

Discussion of A House Without Windows will be on Saturday, December 1. All ladies are invited to join us for book club!!
