Book Club

Welcome to our book club, Accessible Reads: A Book Club for the Blind!

This unique book club has been specifically tailored for blind individuals and will be conducted over the Zoom platform. We aim to create a supportive and inclusive space that fosters community, promotes literacy, and provides an engaging platform for visually impaired individuals to share their love for literature and connect with like-minded individuals.

The world of literature is vast, and everyone, regardless of their visual abilities, should have the opportunity to explore it together. We are excited to embark on this literary journey with you!
