All Invited to Participate: ONE Church, TWO Books

Deacons have been gobbling up our ONE Church/TWO Books summer reading, and we enthusiastically recommend that you do the same. You will fall in love with Starr, the sixteen-year-old narrator of The Hate U Give, and you’ll ache with her through her harrowing experiences. Angie Thomas is an extraordinary young author. Evicted, by Matthew Desmond, will open your eyes to the appalling cycle of eviction and poverty, not only in Milwaukee, but throughout our nation. Desmond brings us into the lives of eight families who live this cycle and the landlords who control it. He creates living portraits of people struggling to find stable, decent housing for their families in the face of dehumanizing economic forces. We are looking forward to discussing these important books in the fall. More information is available from Reverend Kari or Reverend Isaac. Extra copies of the books are available in Fellowship Hall.
