This Saturday, September 24th between 2 and 4pm, our Good Faith Book Club will be talking about Lila. The book's author, Marilynne Robinson, has won numerous awards including the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. In 2013 she was awarded the National Humanities Medal by President Barak Obama and this year, 2016, she has won the Library of Congress Prize for American fiction.

Come along for a relaxing cuppa and chat this Saturday to find out.
