Summer Vacation for the Book Club

Interfaith Winston-Salem’s book club will take a summer vacation. The book club will not meet on July 12th but will return full force in September.

In acknowledgement of the fifteenth anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, the book club will take part in what is shaping up as a community-wide reflection on religion, violence and peace.

The book club has chosen When Religion Turns Evil by Dr. Charles Kimball, chair of the Department of Religion at the University of Oklahoma. Dr. Kimball previously held the same position at Wake Forest University. The public is invited to join the club’s discussion on Tuesday, September 13 at Highland Presbyterian Church.

The discussion will be a precursor to Dr. Kimball’s Carlton Mitchell presentation on Thursday, September 2, which will take place at Brendle Recital Hall on the Wake Forest University campus.  Dr. Kimball is an internationally recognized scholar on the Abrahamic faiths with a special focus on Islam.

In addition to these two events, other local organizations are in the early planning stages to offer additional study and discussion opportunities. Details will be provided later. For additional information contact
