Conversations from the Book Club
“Amnesty International does such important work in healing those wounds in real life, and a book club to help draw attention to the issues of our nation and as a chance for people to meet and interact is such an excellent idea.” ~Joseph Boyden, Amnesty Book Club guest reader and featured author.
“We have a great capacity to not feel for those who are different than us. So we have to be vigilant … If the reader is open, if they are open and they are willing, they will hopefully have an insight into what it must have felt like.” ~ Yann Martel, Amnesty Book Club guest reader and featured author.
“A hundred million girls and women are missing from the population because of systemic infanticide and neglect, not just in India but other parts of Asia, central Europe … All of that human potential being lost. Forget the moral atrocity, which is the first thing that hits you, but our world w
ould be a different world if those hundred girls and women were not missing.” ~ Shilpi Somaya Gowda, author of Secret Daughter, shares insight into her writing during an Amnesty Book Club webcast.
