03/24/19 – Books and Beyond
Books and Beyond is FUMC’s monthly book/plus discussion group which meets one Sunday each month from 7:00-8:30 PM. This month’s selection is Gods of Wood and Stone by Mark Di Ionno.
Special Note: The author will also be attending and participating in the book group discussion.
Author Bio: Mark Di Ionno is a Pulitzer Prize finalist and a front-page columnist for The Star-Ledger. He began his career as a sportswriter for the New York Post. Mr. Di Ionno is a resident of New Jersey and has a reputation for being an entertaining speaker.
Book Synopsis: Framed by the lens of baseball – Gods of Wood and Stone is a timeless, but strikingly singular tale of the responsibilities of manhood and the pitfalls of glory. Referred to as the next Great American Novel about the Great American Pastime, this is a story of one man’s search for meaningful life and fatherhood in a sports-and-celebrity obsessed age, and another man’s fight to avoid losing his soul to it.
Sunday, March 31st at 3 PM. Please join the Oratorio Singers with chorus, brass ensemble, organ and percussion for “Sonic Spectacular” featuring works from Mozart, Mendelssohn, Rutter, Elgar and more! Trent Johnson, music director. General admission $20, Students/Seniors $15.
