Many long-term readers of this Newsletter will already be familiar with the Book Club. For those who aren’t, it meets every Thursday at 6:00 PM for an hour and is divided into three breakout groups based on braille reading proficiency. Members take it in turns to read and support each other with the ups and downs of mastering the braille code.
The three books being read over the next few weeks are:
- Beginners: Paddington Turns Detective and Other Funny Stories, by Michael Bond
Available in grades 1 and 2, double line spacing from the RNIB Library, archive numbers br25991903 (grade 2) and br25991905 (grade 1)

- Intermediate: Nineteen Eighty-Four, by George Orwell
