Online Book Club

Disability Network is pleased to announce the revival of our book club with a new twist. The Disability Network Online Book Club will meet online on the second Wednesday of February, May, August & November.

All books selected for the Online Book Club will have a disability focus and will be available in alternative formats. We will include many genres including fiction, non-fiction and biographical. It is our hope that these books will engage healthy and instructive conversation, provide learning opportunities for all, and be a fun way to spend an evening together.

So sit back, get comfortable, and let’s explore the awesome world of written storytelling!

If you have any questions regarding our Online Book Club or need assistance finding the book in alternative format, please follow this link to email Tyler or call him at (269) 345-1516 x122.
