"THE BOOK BINDERS" BOOK GROUP

This book club meets on certain Fridays at 10:30 a.m. in LOPC Room 110. The next meeting will Friday, March 9, 2018 and will be based on the book Mrs. Robert E. Lee  by John Perry. This is a biography based on Mary Custis Lee's prayer journal that was found in archives.

Many know about her husband, Robert E. Lee, and her great-grandmother, Martha Washington; many have visited the cemetery that now occupies her family estate. But few today know much about Mary Custis Lee herself. Chronically ill and often in excruciating pain, Mary raised seven children, faithfully witnessing to her husband for years before his conversion. She retained her dignity and faith throughout a fruitless, heartbreaking attempt to win compensation for the confiscation of her home and possessions. History is never more powerful than when it provides a role model for enduring hardship with sturdy and radiant faith. Mary Custis Lee is such an example

All women are invited to join us and guests are welcome.

You do not have to read the book to attend. We read and eat good books and the Best Book!
