FUNKSTOWN - The Between the Covers book club began about a year ago as the brainchild of the activities and fellowship committee at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Funkstown.
"We have about six to 10 members now," said Dru McNamee, one of those literary devotees. Most are women but hopes are that will change as the word spreads about the club.
The group meets on the fourth Monday of every month at the church, usually starting its one-to-two-hour sessions around 6:30 p.m.
In September, the club kicked off its fall season with a chance to meet Robert W. Brannon, a local and first-time author. He spoke about his book, "Cricket," which tells of his daughter Kristie, who died in 1991, and her love for baseball. Copies of the book were available for purchase and for signing by the author.
