Hart Readers to Meet in September

The Cathedral Book Store invites you to participate in Hart Readers, a community reading group that discusses contemporary books and issues from a theological perspective, with participants and discussion leaders from various churches in our community. Carroll Keen, a member of the Cathedral of Christ the King, will lead the next session on Thursday, September 7, from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. in Walthour Library. The book being discussed is Between Heaven and Mirth, by James Martin, which explores how a healthy spirituality and a healthy sense of humor go hand-in-hand with God’s great plan for humankind.

The Hart Readers – January

The Hart Readers will meet Wednesday, January 6 at 6:30 p.m. in Walthour Library to discuss The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson. The Rev. Martha Sterne and Dr. Catherine Meeks will lead us. In this epic, beautifully written masterwork, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson chronicles one of the great untold stories of American history: the decades-long migration of black citizens who fled the South for northern and western cities, in search of a better life. From 1915 to 1970, this exodus of almost six million people changed the face of America. For more information, contact Kerith Lee, 404-237-7582 or

Hart Readers to Discuss Evensong

For the Wednesday, December 2 meeting of the Cathedral Book Store’s Hart Readers, we’ll be reading and discussing Evensong by Gail Godwin. Parishioner Sheryl Paylor will facilitate. A bestselling novel by this distinguished author brings to life the people of a small Smoky Mountain town and a woman whose world is indelibly altered by them. Beautifully written and filled with the insight and compassion Godwin is known for, Evensong is about family, the sometimes uncomfortable bonds of marriage, and the quest for religious faith. We will meet in the Walthour Library at 6:30 p.m. Please join us!

Hart Readers to Discuss Cash Novel

The reading group that has met monthly this year has a new name: we are the Hart Readers! Named for Dabney Hart, a longtime parishioner, faithful Book Store volunteer, and leading C.S. Lewis scholar, we read and discuss one book each month, led by different members of the community. Next Wednesday, November 4, at 6:30 p.m. in the Walthour Library, we will talk about Wiley Cash’s novel A Land More Kind Than Home. The Rev. David Wagner, associate priest for youth and young adults at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church will lead us. Looking ahead, we’ll talk about Evensong by Gail Godwin on December 2. Please join us for these interesting and varied discussions!
