About the Book Club

Launched in 2014, the Amnesty International Book Club is a project engaging readers, libraries and book clubs in reading beyond the book. What does that mean? In this book club, not only do we feature excellent literature, but we share interactive author interviews, podcast episodes, challenging discussion questions and rich background on the human rights aspects of popular novels. Our Book Club Newsletter has well over 6,000 subscribers, and is mailed monthly with the latest news in books, actions, reflective essays and our very special discussion guide.
