The Christmas Kid and Other Brooklyn Stories by Pete HamillPUMC BOOK GROUP – Next Zoom Chat on Tuesday, December 21st @ 1:30 PM
The December read for PUMC’s Book Group will be a series of short stories written by Pete Hamill called The Christmas Kid and Other Brooklyn Stories. Return to post-WWII Brooklyn to meet a cast of colorful characters living their lives in the Brooklyn neighborhoods. Meet the merchants, the workers, the gang members, the immigrants, the cops, the kids, and the women … a slice of life from a different era.
Hope to see you on Zoom! Read as many of the short stories as you wish. Bookmark a favorite short story to chat about. Bring your memories of the 40’s, 50’s and forward … it should be a fun and low-stress time. Brew the tea, grab a Christmas cookie and join the fun!
