Now that it is summer, and one is looking for a stimulating
book to read that will put one in another whole world, An Instance
of the Fingerpost by Iain Pears is a book I would highly recommend.
Set in Oxford, England of 1663 where an Oxford don has been
murdered, the book is divided into four parts, each part the
testimony of one of the characters in the book. Four different
versions of the same events to challenge the reader, and memorable
characters like the servant girl, Sarah Blundy, a woman of
spirits, possibly a witch, Richard Lower, physician and collector
of corpses and Marco Da Cola, Venetian traveler interested
in blood transfusion procedures, make An Instance of the Fingerpost
a great reading experience for the summer.
Kill Your TV Reading Group (KYTV) will discuss this book this
Wednesday, July 2 at 7 P.M. On Wednesday,
August 6, 2003 at 7 P.M., KYTV will discuss The Secret Life Of Bees by Sue Monk
Kidd as KYTV completes its fifth year of operation. At the
end of each meeting, the group chooses by consensus the book
for two months down the road. The books chosen by the club
are available for purchase at Logos. After the meeting is over,
those who want to, go out to dinner together.
The study discussion group of Augustine’s City
of God Will next meet on Wednesday July 16 at
7 P.M., and will continue
every other Wednesday except the first Wednesday of the month,
when KYTV meets. Children’s Story Time has stopped for
the summer and will resume in September. Come pick up your
summer reading and gifts at Logos!
