Update (5/19/2020): Next week, the Bookshare Book Club will be meeting to discuss May’s book: Days of Distraction by Alexandra Chang. The book’s author will be joining in the second half of the discussion to talk about her book and answer our questions. Be sure to tune in for the most exciting book club discussion yet!
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.
May’s book will be Days of Distraction by Alexandra Chang. A 25-year-old Chinese-American woman leaves behind her stale Silicon Valley life to join her boyfriend, J, as he begins a grad school program in upstate New York. Instead of an escape, this change of scenery begins a complex path of self-discovery as she confronts the realities of race, gender, and relationships in modern America.
The Zoom webinar discussion for Days of Distraction will take place on Thursday, May 28th at 5:00 pm PT. Register here.
In this time of social distancing, it’s more important than ever to stay connected, so be sure to join the conversation!
