The River North Fiction Book Club

The River North Fiction Book Club met for the first time this past Saturday and it was great. We have a great blend of women who are thoroughly excited about the idea of discussing Christian Fiction and giving some input on future projects from titling and book covers to content ideas. We really started getting to know one another and passed out the first book that we will be discussing, Pearl in the Sand. The ladies were very excited about this title. We even came to confirm as a group, and to the surprise of most of us there, that Rahab, the central character in the book, was the mother of Boaz. This is a big deal because God placed Rahab in Jesus’s genealogy even though she was a harlot. We were all quieted by this idea and then led to even deeper conversation. It might have only lasted an hour, but it was an hour filled with laughs, learning, teaching, and growth. Some of the favorite quotes of the morning came from Elizabeth and Linda, respectively, “Mom, I can’t go and play outside, I am reading, the books are my friends!” and “When the student is ready the teacher will appear.” I am looking forward to getting together again with these ladies next month to discuss the book. Please check us out on our meetup link: we welcome any age and any level of technology knowledge. I will keep you posted on the details of our next meeting time. Until then, pick up Pearl in the Sand and keep up with us. It is a great story and there will be some amazing discussions to be had! If you live in the city of Chicago, we hope to see you at the next meeting!
