Book Club

Here are the upcoming book selections:

November 3rd - The Help by Kathryn Stockett. A novel about..."three women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women-mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends-view one another." The Help is available through both Chandler and Maricopa County Library systems.

December 1st - The Silence of God by Gale Sears. A historical novel based on a true story about an LDS family living in Russia when the Russian revolution breaks out.

Please contact Debbie Kutchinsky ( if anyone in the ward may have a copy of either of these books that they would be willing to lend so that we can economize on some of our books.

Thanks, and happy reading!
