Welcome back to the Bookshare Book Club! Each month, Bookshare staff will choose a book for members to read before hosting a discussion near the end of the month. The conversation will take place through a Zoom webinar. While we have created this club with adult Bookshare members in mind, everyone is welcome to join, including non-Bookshare members.
First of all, thanks to all the book lovers who participated in the lively and engaging discussion last Thursday for the February book club. For March, the book selection is Weather by Jenny Offill. Lizzie’s brother is a recovering drug addict. Her marriage is precarious at best. Her mentor is fed up with her fan mail. Oh, and the world is rapidly collapsing under the weight of climate change. Lizzie’s librarian position may have given her the tools to manage the lives of those around her, but the world is getting bigger and more unmanageable with every passing day. Weather explores what it means to care in a world that doesn’t.
The Zoom webinar discussion for Weather will take place on Thursday, March 26th at 5:00 pm PT. Register here.
Be sure to join in on a stimulating conversation!
