The Warmth of Other Suns: Oct. 21 choice

The LWVBC Book Club has adopted a new name – it is now ‘LWVBC Literati’ (a group of well-educated people interested in literature). Members will continue to meet monthly to discuss books about suffrage, American history and strong women. Everyone is invited to attend.

The next meeting will be held Friday, Oct. 21 at 11 a.m. via Zoom to discuss “The Warmth of Other Suns” by Isabel Wilkerson. Please click here to register to receive the link.

The Pulitzer Prize–winnner and bestselling author of “Caste” 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.






Oct. 26: Discuss 'Killers of the Flower Moon'

The DEI committee has selected the book Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann as its October community read in advance of National Native American Heritage Month in November and in conjunction with Christ Church's Anti-Racism Task Force.

The book depicts how Osage people were caught in the tension between their cultural heritage and traditions and progress of the modern world,  and demonstrates the racism the Osage experienced at the hands of white American culture which allowed whites to view Native Americans as subhumans and set into motion this story of greed, deceit, betrayal, prejudice, inhumanity, evil and heroism.

The Zoom book discussion, led by Pastor Nathan Adams, will be held Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 7 pm.  Register for the Zoom session at christchurchfl.org/anti-racism.  



No Fentanyl Zone discussion canceled due to Hurricane Ian

EVENT CANCELED. Broward County is the statewide epicenter of a fentanyl epidemic. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid up to 100 times more potent than morphine which mirrors the effects of heroin. Just a few salt-sized grains can lead to rapid death. Whether used as a cheap filler in illicit drugs or sold as a counterfeit pill made to look like prescription opioids, fentanyl is the leading contributor to overdose deaths in the U.S.

In Broward County in 2020, 798 people died due to accidental overdoses, with 611 cases involving fentanyl. That's a staggering 72 percent increase in overdose deaths involving fentanyl from the year prior. Though cases for 2021 and 2022 are still being analyzed, they, unfortunately, appear on track to set new records.

An expert panel will discuss the problem in an online program
