The Murphysboro United Methodist Church Saturday Morning Book Club meets the third Saturday of every month at 10:15 am in the MUMC Church Library (Room 110). At each meeting, a book previously selected by the group is discussed. The group reads a variety of books, both fiction and nonfiction alike. Examples of past reading selections include: The Red Tent by Anita Diamant, The President’s Club by Michael Duffy and Nancy Gibbs, The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd, Go Set a Watchman  by Harper Lee and The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. 

Our book selections usually lead to lively discussions and a variety of opinions! The book selections are announced at least two months ahead of time, (can be found by reading our monthly Compass Newsletters) which gives us plenty of time to find and read the book. You’re invited to join us. Read the book, come to the meeting and join the lively discussion! Readers of all ages are welcome. For more information, contact Emily Hargraves at

You are invited to join in the discussion!
