As part of the national “Big Read” event, West-Park Presbyterian Church will be serving as one of the community sites for this event sponsored nationally by the National Endowment for the Arts and locally by Goddard-Riverside and the New York Public Library. This year’s book for “1 Book 1 Community” is by Dinaw Mengestu. While the book is from an Ethiopian immigrant, it opens up a much broader conversation about the experiences of immigration. We will be having a book discussion on Monday, February 16th at 7PM. West-Park Presbyterian Church has received 4 free books — the first 4 to call the office at 212.362.4890 can have them …more to come….!!!!!
Join us tomorrow at 11 AM for Baptism Sunday: Wade in the Water
