What we're about

We will read quality fiction and then engage in a lively exchange of ideas at our monthly meeting in Redwood Shores.

The meeting always take place the last Tuesday of every month from 6-8pm at Redwood Shores Library.

The first half hour will be for introductions and socializing. Please feel free to bring a refreshment or appetizer to share with the other members.

The final half hour will be for discussing or voting on upcoming book selections.

**We occasionally schedule book related outings to add to the enjoyment of this group.

Go Tell It on the Mountain by James Baldwin

Online event

In one of the greatest American classics, Baldwin chronicles a fourteen-year-old boy's discovery of the terms of his identity. Baldwin's rendering of his protagonist's spiritual, sexual, and moral struggle of self-invention opened new possibilities in the American language and in the way Americans understand themselves.

With lyrical precision, psychological directness, resonating symbolic power, and a rage that is at once unrelenting and compassionate, Baldwin tells the story of the stepson of the minister of a storefront Pentecostal church in Harlem one Saturday in March of 1935. Originally published in 1953, Baldwin said of his first novel, "Mountain is the book I had to write if I was ever going to write anything else."
