Virtual Book Club Seeks New Members

A virtual book club for people with vision loss, launched by Lighthouse Guild last September, will begin its second year with its next meeting, on Wednesday, September 8. The program, in partnership with Reader’s Digest Partners for Sight Foundation (RFPFS) and Bookshare, will meet ten times during the year. Partners for Sight is providing a complimentary one-year subscription to its Select Editions Large Type (SELT) condensed popular novels. Members have the option of reading via large print, audio or dual-modality. Alice Massa, a Lighthouse Guild volunteer and occupational therapist, moderates the group, bringing her own experience of transitioning from print to audiobooks into the discussion. She guides members who are having difficulty transitioning from print to audio as well. The group is limited to 15 members. A few memberships are still available on a first-come, first-served basis.
