Half-Blood Blues is Amnesty's book of the month
(NC) The book club of the human rights organization, Amnesty International, has selected Half-Blood Blues, by Esi Edugyan.
Half-Blood Blues tells the story of jazz musicians in Berlin and Paris during the Second World War—and several decades later, the themes of racism, discrimination and displacement are still timely and relevant. The Amnesty International Book Club also offers a free discussion guide, with background information and discussion questions, along with a current human rights action case. You can join the book club by calling 1-800-266-3789 or by going to www.amnestybookclub.ca.
You can also request a free printed copy of the discussion guide and human rights action case by writing to: Amnesty International Book Club, 1992 Yonge Street, Suite #314, Toronto, Ontario, M4S 1Z7.
