The Book Club will meet on Thursday, June 4, at 10 am in the Parish Hall for a discussion of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce. Nancy Wheeler has offered to be our hostess for the June meeting.

Synopsis

Meet Harold Fry, recently retired. He lives in a small English village with his wife, Maureen, who seems irritated by almost everything he does. Little differentiates one day from the next. Then one morning a letter arrives, addressed to Harold in a shaky scrawl, from a woman he hasn’t heard from in twenty years. Queenie Hennessy is in hospice and is writing to say goodbye. But before Harold mails off a quick reply, a chance encounter convinces him that he absolutely must deliver his message to Queenie in person. In his yachting shoes and light coat, Harold Fry embarks on an urgent quest. Determined to walk six hundred miles to the hospice, Harold believes that as long as he walks, Queenie will live. A novel of charm, humor, and profound insight into the thoughts and feelings we all bury deep within our hearts.

At this meeting we will select some books for our fall season. If you have suggestions, please bring them to the meeting or email jownbey@bellsouth.net.

Note: No Book Club meetings will be held in July or August.
