Armchair Travelers Book Club

June 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for a virtual book club!
Date: Tuesday, June 22, 2021
Time: 7:00 p.m. MDT
Location: Online. Register here.
We have developed a “virtual book club” for all SAS Voyage Alumni in the CO Alumni Chapter so that we could:

• travel from the luxury of our own homes, if small things like a global pandemic, finances, children and/or more are keeping us from jumping on the next plane, train or ship, heading to some exciting destination. Hello, armchair traveling!

• connect with other SAS alums and feel our sense of community centered around this life-changing program and shared experience.

• inspire and help each alum to meaningfully engage with SAS as it is today, showing up for this amazing program to share their time (volunteer!), their talent (share your expertise!) and their treasure (share a monthly donation to the Annual Fund! Donate ten dollars or a million dollars!)

• share our love of books and great conversations with other global citizens.
We hope that in time, this group could meet both in person as well as have people attend virtually, but our initial meeting will be virtual on Tuesday, Jun 22, 2021 at 7:00 PM MDT, as noted above.
To register for this free event, simply go to this link: SASColoradoAlumniChapter.eventbrite.com (you’ll be able to see future book choices on the eventbrite page as well).
We used our SAS Colorado Alumni Facebook page to send out a survey for book ideas as well as meeting times. From our responses, the first book will be: From the Land of Green Ghosts: A Burmese Odyssey by Pascal Khoo Thwe. It was first published in 2002, so we hope you can find it at your library, used bookstores, or friends’ bookshelves. Given the current state of affairs in Myanmar (Burma) right now, this is a timely read!

From GoodReads: An emotionally charged and lyrically written memoir about a remarkable odyssey from a Burmese hill tribe and a land torn by civil war to Cambridge University (you can read more on the eventbrite registration page).
