Zoom Book Group: The Heaven and Earth Grocery Store


Please join the Pottstown Cluster for a Zoom book group to discuss The Heaven and Earth Grocery Store set in the community we call home, Pottstown PA.

This novel is based in Pottstown with a close look at the life of immigrants and minorities. While there are leads, James McBride brings a whole cast of interesting characters to life and manages to paint a picture of their life in their own voice. It takes the reader from the thirties to the seventies, but is primarily a snapshot of events, life, and death in the thirties. The key neighborhood is Chicken Hill which was home to African Americans and Jewish immigrants.

We are hosting two Zoom discussions from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 29 and June 5, all are welcome at one or both – all is free!

Register on Zoom here.

Zoom link is in cooperation with the BucksMont Collaborative.
