Global Reads Reign!
Once a month, a group of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) gathers to
discuss the current book selection. While meetings were originally in person, the group now uses Zoom to meet. Any
RPCV can join the group which alternates meetings on the second Tuesday or
Wednesday of the month, usually at 6:30pm.
This year, book reads have ranged from Trevor Noah's "Born a Crime" to Valeria Luiselli's "The Lost Children Archive."
Beginning in January, the selections are:
January 13 (Wednesday) Normal People by Sally Rooney
February 9 (Tuesday) The Bad-Ass Librarians of Timbuktu by Joshua Hammer
March 10 (Wednesday) The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates
April 13 (Tuesday) African Laughter by Doris Lessing
After the April 13 book discussion, the group will discuss selections for the next year beginning in May.
Anyone who wants to become a part of the reading group is welcome. Interested in joining us? Contact Marilyn (Philippines 1964 - 1966) via email.
