Join the St. Peter’s Book Club

The St. Peter’s Book Club has been meeting since October, 2013. The club meets every two months on the third Tuesday at 1:30pm in the Cry Room, to the far right from the main entrance.

About the Book Club

Meetings are very informal and are open to all. We each talk about whether we liked the book and why we liked it. Usually books that we have read have discussion questions that are available online from either the author or the publisher, and we pick from those questions and discuss them. These questions vary from why a character did what they did, whether the story can be applied to today’s world, questions about the dialog of the book, and others. These discussions are always laid back and fun. If members have not had a chance to finish the book, it’s okay! At every meeting, the group decides on the book to be read at the next meeting. 

January’s Book

January’s Book is An Invisible Thread by Laura Schroff and Alex Tresniowski

An Invisible Thread is a true story of an 11-year-old panhandler, a busy sales executive, and an unlikely meeting with destiny. Laura was a successful ad sales rep in Manhattan. He was a homeless eleven-year-old panhandler on the street. He asked for spare change; she kept walking. But then something stopped her in her tracks and she went back. And she continued to go back, again and again. They met up nearly every week for years and built an unexpected, life-changing friendship that has today spanned almost three decades. Join St. Peter’s Book Club as they meet on Tuesday, January 17 at 1:30pm to discuss An Invisible Thread by Laura Schroff & Alex Tresniowski.
