St. James Book ClubbookClub

The St. James UMC Book Club will meet January 26, 2020, at 4:00 p.m. in the Parlor to discuss “I, Eliza” by Susan Holloway Scott.
In this beautifully written novel of historical fiction, bestselling author Scott tells the story of Alexander Hamilton’s wife, Eliza—a fascinating, strong-willed heroine in her own right and a key figure in one of the most gripping periods in American history.
Come join us for some lively discussion.
