Book Group


The Baldwin Street Book Group gets together every 4 to 6 weeks for a casual discussion about a book we have all read. Every group member is encouraged to take a turn in making a book selection. Consequently we have read books with a variety of themes, genres and settings.

New members are welcome. Call Phyllis at 457-0453 for dates and places.

Diet Eman

"Things We Couldn't Say" is the true story of Diet Eman, a young Dutch woman, who, with her fiance, Hein Sietsma, risked everything to rescue imperiled Jews in Nazi-occupied Holland during World War II. Throughout the years that Diet and Hein aided the Resistance--work that would cost Diet her freedom and Hein his life--their courageous effort ultimately saved hundreds of Dutch Jews.
