The Finding Faith Through Fiction Book Club will meet at 7:00 pm on Monday, May 7 in the undercroft.   This month's selection has been changed to "The Invention of Wings"  by Sue Monk Kidd.
 
The book is the fictionalized history of the Grimké sisters, Sarah and Angelina (Nina), who were at the forefront of the abolitionist and women's rights movements, wound around the intriguing narrative of a young slave, Hetty, who was given to Sarah as an 11th birthday present. Sarah despises slavery, even at that early age, and out of principle attempts to reject the gift.
