Hope UCC Book Club
In October, the Hope UCC’s Book Club will be reading Anita Diamant’s The Red Tent. Here is a little background for the book:
Her name is Dinah. In the Bible, her life is only hinted at in a brief and violent detour within the more familiar chapters of the Book of Genesis that are about her father, Jacob, and his dozen sons. Told in Dinah’s voice, this novel reveals the traditions and turmoils of ancient womanhood—the world of the red tent. It begins with the story of her mothers—Leah, Rachel, Zilpah, and Bilhah—the four wives of Jacob. They love Dinah and give her gifts that sustain her through a hard-working youth, a calling to midwifery, and a new home in a foreign land.
The group will meet on Sunday, November 1, at 12:00 p.m. to discuss the book. Bring a lunch and gather in the Conference Room or Fellowship Hall. Face covering is required, appropriate COVID 19 safety protocols will be followed.
