FāVS Is Reading “The Book of Joy—Lasting Happiness in a Changing World”

SpokaneFāVS will be launching our very own book club: FāVS Is Reading. We don’t know about you, but we feel like we could use a little more joy in our lives. So, starting April 1, FāVS Is Reading “The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World” by Dalai Lama XIV, Desmond Tutu, and Douglas Carlton Abrams.

The plan for the book club is to take three months to read our chosen book. The first two months, the FāVS Is Reading community will meet to discuss the book, via Zoom for now, and the final month, we’ll host a guest or a panel to discuss the themes in the book more in depth.

If you order your book from Wishing Tree Books (1410 E. 11th Ave), 15% of each purchase will be donated to SpokaneFāVS.

We also created a private Facebook group for those who want to take part in our book club as a place to discuss the book throughout the months. Those who sign up for the book club will be emailed this information.

Important Dates to Keep in Mind:

Late March/Early April – Order your book from Wishing Tree Books

April 24 – First Book Club Discussion via Zoom, 10-11:30 a.m.

May 29 – Second Book Club Discussion via Zoom, 10-11:30 a.m.

June 26 – Final Book Club Discussion with Guest Speaker/Panel via Zoom, 10-11:30 a.m.

About Cassy Benefield

Cassandra Benefield mostly goes by Cassy (pronounced like Cassie but spelled with a 'y'). She is a wife and mommy, who married at the age of 37 and had her baby girl just shy of 39. She has moved around all her life, first as an Army brat. She is a returned Peace Corps volunteer to Romania where she taught Conversational English, Modern Literature, Creative Writing, U.S. Culture, U.S. Geography, and U.S. History (the last two subjects she was so not qualified to teach!). She is a Journalism major from Cal Poly Technical University in San Luis Obispo, Calif. She finds much comfort in her Savior, Jesus Christ, and considers herself a Bible nerd who is prone to buy more theology books than she is ever able to read. Morro Bay, California, is her favorite place on earth ... with the exception of being in the center of God's will. From time to time, you will find her writing devotions on her blog underhisshadow.blogspot.com.
