Book Club Discussion

We are pleased to announce that the next discussion of the First Pres Book Club is scheduled for Wednesday, September 2nd, from 7:00- 8:30 p.m. In compliance with State law and our church’s current related policy restricting group activities in our church building until further notice, we have again made arrangements to offer this event via Zoom. The book selected is "It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood: Neighborly Words of Wisdom from Mr.Rogers" by Tom Junod.

Tom Junod’s Esquire profile of Fred Rogers, “Can You Say... Hero?,” has been hailed as a classic of magazine writing. His moving story of meeting and observing the beloved host of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood was also the inspiration for the movie version, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, directed by Marielle Heller and written by Micah Fitzerman-Blue & NoahHarpster.
Junod’s unforgettable piece appears for the first time in book form alongside an inspiring collection of advice and encouragement from Mister Rogers himself. Covering topics like relationships, childhood, communication, parenthood, and more, Rogers’s signature sayings and wise thoughts are included here. Pairing the definitive portrait of a national icon with his own instructions for living your best, kindest life, this book is a timeless treasure for Mister Rogers fans. Available from Amazon Prime for $11.45 (in paperback), or $11.99 (in Kindle format, with a $1.20 credit for a future “Great on Kindle” book.)

Please contact the church office (734-1614) if you have any questions.
