Online book clubbers: please feel free to post comments on the blog prior to the 10th of April (our next book club gathering) and i will read your responses out at the Book Club meeting. Lets all get involved!
Please note: Our book club is an open book club for both Aboriginal and non Aboriginal people. As adults we will partake in conversations, over the term of the book club, that will at times be humourous and light, insightful, and perhaps challenging. Discussions will be respectful of each others opinions.
