FGC News


Each month, FGC distributes two monthly digital newsletters to share updates and information about FGC, QuakerBooks, and the FGC Gathering. Below is the introductory text and links to our February 2020 newsletters for friends.

Note: A new Vital Friends eNewsletter will arrive on Friday, March 6th, 2020, since our most recent issue was a double issue.

Book Musings

Dear Friend,

Thank you to those readers who contacted me with book recommendations. As I try to keep up with them, I'm reading far more than I used to, storing bits of truth and inspiration that pop back up later. I feel like a squirrel with many caches of acorns.

Quaker Press of FGC is thrilled to introduce its newest book, The Kendal Sparrow, which has already received high praise from numerous authors. We hope you'll consider The Kendal Sparrow for book groups or adult education, and certainly for yourself.

Audrey Greenhall,

Manager for QuakerBooks
