Sharp eyed readers will know that I'm referring to the book by Patricia Wood, a wonderful story of a man with an intellectual disability. A couple of months ago we announced that Rolling Around would be hosting our 3rd book club. Lots of you signed on and I said I'd set a date in January.
Well, the date is nigh upon us, January 25th will be the day that we talk about the book together. What is very cool is that Patrica Wood, the book's author has agreed to write something for the blog that day. What an honour to have her join with our little community here and to hear what she has to say about the writing of the book and the development of the characters within.
Vita Community Living Services has a book club and we will be meeting on that same day. Christian Horizons, a fellow service organization, has some staff that will be joining us and I anticipate a wonderful discussion.
So, for those who said they'd join - if you haven't read the book, get pounding. For those that have, be prepared to add in a few words and particularly welcome Patricia to the forum.
To remind you, there are two ways to participate in the Book Club, for those who have blogs, you can blog about the book and link to us here at Rolling around and put your contact information in the comment section so readers can pop over and visit your blog. Or you can simply just write something in the comment section of the blog that day. This has worked well in the past and will do again I'm sure.
I'm all excited!
I'd also like some suggestions for future book club meetings. The only criteria is that the book must have something to do with disability in some way. So what's good out there?
