Wednesday, July 11, 6:00 p.m.
The Social Justice Ministry will be hosting a book study this summer. The book by Mitch Margo is titled Black Hearts White Minds. It is a legal thriller set in 1964 in Stockville, Alabama.
“Black Hearts White Minds is an important book that lances the boil of prejudice, peels away the crusted layers of historic bigotry, and reveals a purer sense of what’s possible when we see ourselves and each other as whole and valid. Mitch Margo’s own life experiences coupled with his mastery of story puts him in a league with John Grisham and Taylor Branch.” ~ Mara Purl, Best-selling Author, What the Heart Knows and Where the Heart Lives
“The early sixties are often thought of as a time of lost innocence. Margo reminds us that the era was anything but innocent in the American south. His novel rings with authenticity and his characters’ struggles in the fictional town of Stockville, Alabama foretell the problems we still face today. Stockville is not really so far from Ferguson.” ~ Bill McClellan, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Mitch Margo is a local author, and will be joining us for the book study discussion Wednesday, July 11. We will offer a light supper in Park Hall at 6:00 p.m. followed by break-out discussion groups. We will reconvene for a reading by Mitch from his book. Other churches will be joining St. Martin’s for this book study. We look forward to a fun night of literacy, refreshments and meeting new friends.
Books will be available for purchase this Sunday after both church services.
