A Canticle for Leibowitz

Starting on the first Wednesday in November, the adult education class of First Reformed Church will discuss a new book. A staple on modern high school and college curricula, A Canticle for Leibowitz is a sci-fi novel of ecclesiological interest. This means that, while reading it, one can learn a lot about the nature of the church. Since the book has three parts, we will be reading it through the month of January.



Interested in a three-month commitment? Then order your copy online and join us on Wednesday, November 3 at 6:30PM for a light dinner with discussion to follow at 7:00PM. Please use the entrance on 9 Bayard Street.
