Our July book will be James Baldwin's novella of a young couple in love in 1970's Harlem, If Beale Street Could Talk, which was recently a movie.

The "Romeo" of this pair has been unfairly jailed by police. Originally published in 1974, it should be available in public libraries. It's also available at B&N as a slim paperback bearing the images of the movie actors who played the leads.

For those unfamiliar with James Baldwin, this short novel is a quick introduction to one of America's great writers.

For those interested, simply read the book on your own time and come ready to discuss!

The next Book Club meeting will be held following 5pm worship on Pentecost Sunday, June 9th, to discuss Francis Spufford’s 2016 novel Golden Hill. Golden Hill won three prizes: the Costa First Novel Award, the RSL Ondaatje Prize, and the Desmond Elliot Prize. It was also shortlisted for the Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction.

“Golden Hill” […] keeps its theme — the moral conundrum of America — ever in its sights, through breakneck chase scenes and dark nights of the soul. It has the high spirits of an eighteenth-century novel, but not the ramshackle mechanics.” (excerpted from The New Yorker)

After the June meeting, we’ll experiment with meeting during July & August for the first time, and we need book suggestions! We favor fiction and memoirs – around 300 pages or less, and not too gloomy (please).
