The Opportunity International Book Club
Raise your hand if you wish you could travel the world but life is getting in the way.
We feel the same way, and finally decided to do something about it!
Dr. Seuss promised that “the more that you learn, the more places you’ll go,” so we’re committing to a year of learning about our favorite places, cultures, and topics through the Opportunity International Book Club. And we want you to join us!
Here’s how it works:
Each month, we will feature a book about a region of the world in which Opportunity works, a topic we should all know more about (poverty, development, philanthropy, generosity, etc.), or an issue that is relevant to our clients. The books will range in length, genre, and narrative style—but all are guaranteed to enrich our perspective of the world around us.
We’ll send you an email announcing the book of the month; just sign up below to stay up to date. We’ll also share the book on social media—so make sure you are connected with us on Facebook and Instagram!
After reading, we’ll start an online discussion about the book—we’ll have questions to get the ball rolling and will absolutely want to hear your reflections, lingering questions, and how you’ve been inspired. This will also be a great chance to connect with readers from around the country.
A few times a year, we’ll also host virtual book clubs, where we’ll have our discussions on a live webinar so we can dig even deeper into the books!
Want to talk about the book in person?
Gather a few friends, put out some wine and cheese, and start chatting. We’ll send you discussion questions and information about Opportunity for your reference. We can even help you invite other book club members in your area!
Make sure to sign up below to stay in the loop about all things Book Club. We can’t wait to read, discuss, and learn with you.
