For our next meeting, Tuesday, November 16 at 7 PM, Phyllis Romito will lead a discussion of “Me Before You” by Jojo Moyes. First published in 2012, it is a love story and a family story but also a story of the bravery and sustained effort needed to redirect the path of a life once it has been pushed off course. This is a novel about a quadriplegic and his caretaker and it has sparked controversy and criticism from disability advocates who claim that disability is presented as an insurmountable tragedy. Since we are all but one accident away from disability (temporary or permanent), we invite people to read the book and come join us for what should be a lively discussion.

The GSV Book Club invites members and volunteers to consider joining the group. We do not limit our selections to any one genre; any person willing to lead a discussion proposes a title for the group to read. We have found that an advantage of participating in the book group is that it encourages us to read books we wouldn’t have otherwise considered or gotten to enjoy. Hope to see you there!
