All adults are welcome to participate in monthly book discussions. For a morning of lively discussion call 740.924.3561, email Miss Martha at msturgill@alexandria.lib.oh.us or stop by the library to join the Book Club. You need not be available every month in order to participate. The choice for September is Hiding in the Light by Rifqa Bary.

Rifqa Bary grew up in a devout Muslim home, obediently following her parents’ orders to practice the rituals of Islam. But God was calling her to freedom and love. He was calling her to true faith. He was calling her to give up everything.

Leaving Islam for Christianity cost her more than she imagined but gave more than she could have dreamed. Hiding in the Light is the story of Rifqa’s remarkable spiritual journey from Islam to Christianity. It is also the untold story of how she ran from her father’s threats to find refuge with strangers in Florida, only to face a controversial court case that reached national headlines. Most of all, it is the story of a young girl who made life-changing sacrifices to follow Jesus—and who inspires us to do the same.

If you are new and would like to join us, please enter by the meeting room door as the library is closed on Fridays.
