Read a Book about Exile

Books transport us. Through the page, we can reach out and touch another’s experience, or take a hike with them through the mountains and valleys of their imagination.

Pick a book or short story to read alone, with friends or at a book club. Journey through its pages and, if you like where it takes you, pass it on or recommend to a friend. You could even write a book review.

Whatever you do, let us know what you’ve read and what you thought by sharing on social media using #ReadaBook #SimpleActs.
