Game Night!

Saturday, January 20,  6-9pm

If you’re interested in games, meeting new people, and general fun, then you will love our first Saturdays Game Night—a great, low-key activity for kids and adults of all ages! The event starts at 6:00 p.m. and ends at 9:00 p.m. If you arrive before 6:15, you can chip in for pizza ($5 to $10 suggested donation), or bring your own food (and of course your own beverages). We'll have lots of games, but please bring some of your own favorites to share! For more info, email: This email address is being protected from spambots.

We will discuss Matthew Desmond’s "Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City." In this Pulitzer Prize-winning 2016 work, Desmond, a Harvard University sociologist and 2015 MacArthur “Genius” Award winner, investigates poverty-stricken Milwaukee neighborhoods to argue that eviction is not just a condition of poverty, but rather a cause of it. Evicted won the Chicago Tribune’s Heartland Prize for Nonfiction in 2017.

Sunday, March 4, 12:15pm

We will discuss Ann Patchett's "Commonwealth." Told with equal measures of humor and heartbreak, this 2016 novel is a meditation on inspiration, interpretation, and the ownership of stories. It is a brilliant and tender tale of the far-reaching ties of love and responsibility that bind us together. Based in Tennessee, Patchett won the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction and the U.K.’s Orange Prize for Fiction for her 2001 novel "Bel Canto."
