'Lila' by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Marilynne Robinson is our Good Faith Book Club choice for our next meeting. The Economist commented, "Robinson explores eternity, and she does so in a quiet, ruminative style that takes over your heart as well as your head."

If you want to join us on Saturday 24th September from 2 — 4pm, feel free to do so.
