About the Event

The Trinity Book Club meets the last Sunday of every month. It’s okay if you didn’t finish the book…but (spoiler alert!) we will discuss the ending! Meets monthly in Stearns Library in the cathedral office building.

July selection: The Summer Book, by Tove Jansson (Moderator: Marti Anderson)

An elderly artist and her six-year-old granddaughter while away a summer together on a tiny island in the gulf of Finland. Gradually, the two learn to adjust to each other's fears, whims and yearnings for independence, and a fierce yet understated love emerges - one that encompasses not only the summer inhabitants but the island itself, with its mossy rocks, windswept firs and unpredictable seas.
