Book Club

The Well-Read Mom (WRM) Book Club is a means for women to accompany one another in reading the classics, great books, and timeless spiritual works from Western and Christian traditions to nurture our hearts and moral imaginations.

It aims to help women make space for reading and reflection in their daily lives and to create a place where they can come together to share what they are learning through their reading. The group reads books that push, provoke, and inspire us to dive deeper into the plots of our own lives. Great writers become dear friends, and we see reality through their eyes, imbued with their insights.

The book picks come from the non-profit group, The Well-Read Mom, a
nd are organized into yearly themes: i.e., The Year of the Friend, The Year of the Worker, and The Year of the Pilgrim. For more information, please visit the Well-Read Mom website.

The group, led by Meg Clemens, meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 6:30-7:45pm, September-June, in the Ss. Peter &Paul Parish Center. All parish and surrounding community women are invited to join (mom status not required) to be encouraged to read more and read well! For more information, please email sppoffice@saintsppta.org.
