Now that coffee hour has resumed, St. George’s book club will be meeting in person (outside, weather permitting). The group will discuss The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett on June 20. Sandee Hughes selected the book. It tells a fictional story of identical twins who lose touch when one of them decides to live as a white woman while the other sister retains her African-American identity.

All on the Same Page Book Club:  August 15, 2021 “The Invention of Nature” by Andrea Wulf

Dr. Jeffrey Wengrovius chose this book, which is about Alexander von Humboldt, a Prussian scientist who left a life of privilege to study the natural world first-hand. He was ahead of his era and influenced many famous contemporaries, including Henry David Thoreau, Charles Darwin, and Thomas Jefferson. Known as “The Father of Environmentalism,” von Humboldt was the first scientist to document the disastrous effects of human abuse of the natural world.
