AMHC to host virtual book club

PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — AMHC Sexual Assault Services will host a virtual book club for individuals to learn, heal and grow whether they are a survivor of sexual assault or want to learn more about supporting others in their healing journey. 

The weekly Zoom meetings will be held Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon from Aug. 7 through Sept. 11.

  “We appreciate the Maine Humanities Council for making the grant funds available for us to host the book club,” said Julia Miller, program director of Prevention and Sexual Assault Services. “This Learning, Healing and Growing through Literature series will bring together participants from the comfort of their own home and create a safe space for them to discuss and share.”

  Funding from the Maine Humanities Council will allow attendees to receive a free copy of “The Body Keeps The Score” by Bessel van der Kolk, MD, as well as a journal and color pen set to help attendees reflect on the weekly readings.
