The Book Club

The themes of caring and advocating for an ill loved one, finding resiliency in times of trial, and finding one's place in his or her family makes "The Hunny Bunny" an excellent choice for book clubs. I'd love to join your discussion in person if you're in the Pittsburgh area. I travel frequently for work, so do not hesitate to check my availability as I may be in your area. Please email me at jack@hunnybunnyproject.org if your book club is interested!
