Human Rights & Equity
Book Club

Welcome to the Human Rights and Equity (HRE) Book Club!

Here, members and staff will participate in discussing a variety of books in a virtual forum. The HRE team will be looking for recommended reads by Canadian authors who have had an impact on equity groups – racialized members, members with disabilities, Indigenous members, Francophone members, and LGBTQI2S members. They also hope they can get an author or two to join the review!

Our Next Book

Join us on October 17, 2023 at 5:30 p.m. (ET) to discuss, I know this much is true by Wally Lamb.
