Book Club News

*All members of St. Mark are welcome and encouraged to invite guests. You can attend as many or as few meetings as you wish.

*Contact Sue Matzke with any questions. Feel free to call/text (440)346-5588 or email RaggedyMom@gmail.com

*Meetings will be from 6:30-8: 30 pm and start with a potluck. You can join us for just the book discussion portion of the meeting that begins roughly at 7:15 pm. We generally meet in the small dining room off the kitchen.

*There will be signups for the potluck portion. You are always welcome to drop in without a dish. You are also not required to read the book. You can come just for the Christian fellowship.

*Discussion questions will be made available prior to the meeting. They will be posted on the church website and near the potluck signup.

Summer 2019:

Book Club takes a break.

September  29th

Ted Gup’s A Secret Gift will be our September selection. This true story with local ties explores the lasting legacy of one man’s generosity during The Great Depression. The title is readily available in various formats via local libraries, book stores, and on Amazon. Beginning in late August, Sue will have copies to borrow. Updates will be posted in the bulletin.


October 24th

William Young’s The Shack will be our October selection. Read (or reread) this bestseller from a decade ago and come for a lively, Lutheran-centric discussion. The title is readily available in various formats via local libraries, book stores, and on Amazon  Sue will have copies to borrow.

November 21st

We will finally read Tara Westover’s Educated: A Memoir. We will discuss this autobiography of a young girl, kept out of school by her radical father, who leaves her survivalist family and goes on to earn a Ph.D. from Cambridge University. This title is readily available to purchase from book stores and Amazon. Wait lists at libraries are significantly shorter than eighteen months ago. Sue will try to have copies available to borrow.

December 2019

Book Club takes a break to celebrate Christ’s birth.
