Book clubs as cultural bridges

The author of the Learning page article "Book Clubs Abound," March 17, shows how such groups can provide a newcomer with intellectual stimulation as well as help one find friends when moving to a different area. That was the case when I married a Canadian and first moved to Calgary, Alberta, and then to British Columbia. The small groups of like-minded people have provided a wonderful bridge to the culture in my new country. Kardyne Steacy, Balfour, B.C.
