Since September 11th, 2001, the MWP Social Action Book Group has focused on books about the experiences of immigrant populations and the issues that have brought them to this country and our community. All the books teach us about the strengths and resilience of people in other cultures. The book group meets four times a year on the second or fourth Saturday of the month in March, June, September and December, from 1:30-3pm. Please check the calendar for exact dates.
If you are interested in more information or would like to be on the book club mailing list, please contact Jane Whiteside at [email protected].

Book: “Ghana Must Go: A Novel”, by Taiye Selasi, “takes readers from Accra to Lagos to London to New York. It is at once a portrait of a modern family and an exploration of the importance of where we come from to who we are. A renowned surgeon and failed husband, Kweku Sai dies suddenly at dawn outside his home in suburban Accra. The news of his death sends a ripple around the world, bringing together the family he abandoned years before. Moving with great elegance through time and place, Ghana Must Go charts their circuitous journey to one another and, along the way, teaches us that the truths we speak can heal the wounds we hide.
