Braille Bug Reading Club Selections

This year the Braille Bug is asking, "How do people cope with challenges in their lives?"

The Reading Club will feature books that highlight stories of people who face challenges because they are different than the majority of their neighbors and friends. They are of different races, ethnicity, religion, or abilities and because of these differences they face challenges that others may not have to face. These stories highlight how they cope with those challenges through their own ingenuity or inventiveness and strength of character.

Books are recommended for a variety of reading levels and, as always, a variety of media (print, braille, audio, and electronic formats).
