The First Congregational Church of Washington will kick off a winter book group Jan. 9 at 7 p.m.

The group will meet for a total of six weeks in the church's parish house on the Washington Green.

Men and women are invited to attend although the name of the book to be studied, "Women, Food and God: An Unexpected Path to Almost Everything" by Geneen Roth, suggests otherwise.

Attendees are asked to obtain a copy of the book before the first meeting.

For more information and registration, call the church office at 860-868-0569 or email
