The Symposium 2017

0

The Symposium book club will meet on Monday, January 16 at Princeton Seminary’s Center for Continuing Education. The meeting will be at 7:00 p.m. in the Clarke Lounge in Erdman Hall (20 Library Place). The Seminary’s cafeteria will be closed for the Martin Luther King holiday, so we will all be on our own for dinner.

The book for this month is Everyone Brave is Forgiven by Chris Cleave.

Set in London during the years of 1939–1942, when citizens had slim hope of survival, much less victory; and on the strategic island of Malta, which was daily devastated by the Axis barrage, Everyone Brave is Forgiven features little-known history and a perfect wartime love story inspired by the real-life love letters between Chris Cleave’s grandparents.

This dazzling novel dares us to understand that, against the great theater of world events, it is the intimate losses, the small battles, the daily human triumphs that change us most. (From the publisher.)

There is no presenter scheduled for this meeting. Please bring your questions and thoughts for a general discussion.

We remind you all that we still need volunteers to do the presentations for the following:

04/17/17 The Tongue is Also a Fire

05/15/17 Seven Women: And the Secret of Their Greatness

10/16/17 Signing Their Lives Away

Please consider whether you could lead one of these discussions.

We look forward to seeing you. As always, we welcome visitors and guests. Dinner for first time guests will be paid for out of our treasury.
