Gretchen’s Book Club will meet Thursday, March 12. to discuss the novel Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate. In this heartfelt story, twelve-year-old Rill Foss and her four younger siblings live a magical life aboard their family’s Mississippi River shantyboat until their parents disappear one night, and they are forced into a Tennessee orphanage. At the mercy of the facility’s cruel director, Rill finds danger and uncertainty all around as she fights to keep her siblings together.
The meeting will be in the Youth Room of the church at 1:00 p.m. Bring your own coffee, tea or water this month because Gretchen and her coffee pot will miss the meeting. New members are welcome. Contact Gretchen at 315-567-6137 or at for more information.
