Book Club Members receive, for free, this gorgeous publication. Go beyond the book and see another side to the story.
Keep Learning to Keep Engaging
Taking action to sign petitions pushes forward change. Learning more and engaging a story on a deeper level helps to create even stronger human rights. Join us as we explore important human right stories and moments. Each month we link our featured novel to an Amnesty action and online petition.

Conversations from the book club
“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 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 would 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.
“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 reader and featured author.
Join the book club that’s not just a book club.
