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.
The book selection for August is We Could Be Heroes by Mike Chen. Jamie and Zoe meet in a support group for memory loss and realize they have more in common than they think: they both have superpowers. While Jamie uses his powers to rob banks, Zoe uses hers to deliver food. Their chance meeting leads the pair to search for the truth of their pasts, and they just might fight some crime along the way.
The Zoom webinar discussion for We Could Be Heroes will take place on Thursday, August 26, at 5:00 pm PT. Register here.
“As a congenitally visually impaired senior who has been an avid reader for years, being a member of the Bookshare book club is one of the joys of my life. With adult members of all ages, the discussions are as diverse and interesting as its reading selections. I truly look forward to the monthly interactions and am very thankful to its facilitator, Amreen, and her employer, Benetech, for all they do to ensure that it continues to occur.”–Bookshare Book Club participant
