Book Club Selection: PUSH by Sapphire

The third book club selection for THE NEW SOCIAL WORKER's Book Club is the novel PUSH, by Sapphire. This is the book upon which the movie PRECIOUS is based.

I started reading this book, and it is a powerful story. I hope you will read it with me! The book club will be discussing this book in an online chat at http://www.socialworkchat.org on January 31, 2010, at 9 p.m. Eastern Time. Please join us and explore this important book with other social workers. We also would love to hear from social workers who have seen the movie!

Please join our book club group on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/group.php?gid=98840583520&ref=ts for more details about the club!

Previous book club selections were The Soloist and Still Alice.

  1. Hello! I'm a social work grad student in Massachusetts.  I started a blog, mainly about macro social work, and also policy and other social work on the web. I'm trying to publicize my blog and get discussions started, so I'd appreciate it if you can link me from your site. Feedback on my blog welcomed!
