Awareness and action part of the Amnesty International Book Club
(NC)—Thousands of Canadians belong to book clubs—they offer a chance to read good books and discuss compelling themes with other interested readers. This year, there is a new kind of book club you can join, which will give you a chance to directly impact the lives of other people in a positive way.
The human rights organization Amnesty International has launched a book club that combines all the enjoyment of a regular book club along with the opportunity to take action on a human rights case that relates to the content of the book you have just read.
So far this year, members of the Amnesty international Book Club have read Three Day Road by Joseph Boyden and Half-Blood Blues by Esi Edugyan.
If you're interested in joining a different kind of book club and getting a free discussion guide and human rights action case every month, write to Amnesty International Book Club, 1992 Yonge Street, #314, Toronto, Ontario, M4S 1Z7 or call toll free at 1-800-266-3789.
