Book of the semester: The Martian by Andy Weir

The VA Book Club has been a staple of Books for a Benefit since Fall of 2015, and it has been a favorite of many of our members. The book club is a semester-long weekly commitment where our members don't just read with the veterans, they converse with them and get to know them as people. The veterans have reached out multiple times to tell us how much they appreciate the book club and how for many of them it is the highlight of their week. Because the VA Book Club is so much fun and has been so successful among our members and the veterans, we're in the midst of expanding the program to include social events at the VA (i.e. holiday parties, potlucks, etc.)
