Join a different kind of book club
(NC) In person or online, avid readers enjoy getting together to discuss the content of thought-provoking books – and now Amnesty International is launching a book club with an inviting twist.
In addition to reading a recommended book every month, members will also have an opportunity to take action on a human rights issue, or on a country featured in the story. .
“One of the great things about Amnesty International is that it gives everyone the chance to take action to protect human rights,” says Samantha Burdett, a volunteer and one of the new book club's founders. “We're hoping the book club will allow us to reach more Canadians who are interested in human rights issues and who want to help other people around the world.”
To find out more about the Amnesty International Book Club, or to sign up for the recommended book suggestions and discussion guides every month, you can write to: Amnesty International Book Club, 1992 Yonge Street, Suite 314, Toronto, Ontario, M4S 1Z7.
