‘Quick Read’ Book Group

For those who love to read and discuss great literature but just can’t find the time for those big reads, a “Quick Read” Book Club is forming.

The first selection is “Words By Heart” by Ouida Sebestyen, a moving story of a black family in the early 1900s trying to build a life in an all-white town. Lena, the main character, gives readers a lesson in courage, loyalty and strength of convictions.

Meetings will be held at 7 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of each month, beginning March 27, in the Community Room at All Saints, 895 Main St., West Newbury. The group is limited to 12. Call Becky DeSmith at 413-782-7113 to join. Free copies of the book to the first 10 people. Refreshments will be served. All are welcome.

Christian Schools Information Night

All Saints Anglican Church, Friend Street, Amesbury, is hosting an information meeting Thursday at 7 p.m. about the value and importance of Christian schools and homeschooling. It will bring together members from multiple churches in the area and representatives of four local Christian schools. The meeting will be held in the lower church hall.

Representatives from Classical Conversations Home Schooling Group and Portsmouth, Boxford, Bradford and Covenant Christian academies will be on hand to discuss the distinctives of each school. Free and open to the public.
