Book Club usually meets once a month from 7 to 8 p.m. in the St. Thomas Library. We are an open book club: All are welcome, whether you have read the book or not. On Monday, June 27 using Zoom conferencing, we will meet to discuss The Personal Librarian by Marie Benedict & Victoria Christopher Murray. Young Belle is hired by J. P. Morgan to curate a collection of rare manuscripts, books, and artwork for his newly built Pierpont Morgan Library. The daughter of Richard Greener, the first Black graduate of Harvard and a well-known advocate for equality, Belle becomes one of the most powerful people in the art and book world, all while hiding her origins and passing as white. An extraordinary tale that is both brilliant historical fiction and an important and timely commentary on racism. – New York Times
