IN-SIGHT Book Club

IN-SIGHT hosts a Talking Books discussion group that meets monthly at IN-SIGHT, located at 43 Jefferson Blvd., Warwick. The book club is open to anyone who is blind or visually impaired and who is registered with the Talking Books Library. IN-SIGHT provides book club members with a copy of the current book for discussion on a digital cartridge - or members can download them on their own digital cartridge from their home computer. Members meet to discuss book themes, plot, characters, and overall message. New members are always welcome! For more information, contact Carla Ferreira at (401) 941-3322 or cferreira@in-sight.org.
