The Rev. Cheryl Leshay, Community Minister, reads on a Kindle. She recommends “Call for a Blanket Dance.” She says “I loved this book that was set in Oklahoma at the same time I grew up there. It was by a native author and gave me a window into the world I was kept from. My sister and I were reading it simultaneously and did not know it until we recommended it to each other!” The second book she recommends is “The Lincoln Highway;” she enjoyed it so much she could not put it down. “My go to when I’m stuck inside “resting” and need to raise my spirits is the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series. I enjoy the venture into familiar characters and it makes me want to visit Botswana.” (Composite photo by Betty Jenewin) Photo of the Week #5 This photo from the UUCW archives takes us back to April 12, 2003 and the Women’s Runaway Weekend in Lee, MA.
