Join Amnesty's new book club and read Three Day Road in January
(NC) If you're one of the thousands of Canadians who want to join a book club but haven't found one yet, consider joining a new book club launched this month by Amnesty International.
January's book is Three Day Road by Canadian author Joseph Boyden. This book was recommended by author Nino Ricci, and tells the story of a Cree soldier returning from the First World War.
In addition to reading the book, and using the discussion questions Amnesty will provide, you'll be able to take action on a case related to Canada's First Nations.
“Giving people a chance to take action on something they've just read about is a uniquely Amnesty thing”, says Renee Saviour, a volunteer and one of the new book club's founders. “We want to involve more Canadians in taking action on human rights issues and we hope the book club will help us reach new people who are interested.”
To find out more about the club, or to sign up to receive 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 or call 1-800-266-3789.
