Do you want to come together with other people to share your experiences of reading a pre agreed book and to look at how as a collective we can take any learning from the book and turn it into action?
Then the SCVS book club might be for you.
“The first book that we will look at is Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would Cure the World – Deckle Edge, August 25, 2009 by Tracy Kidder,” said a spokesperson.
This powerful and inspiring book showing how one person can make a difference, The author tells the true story of a gifted man who is in love with the world and has set out to do all he can to cure it.
At the center of Mountains Beyond Mountains stands Paul Farmer. Doctor, Harvard professor, renowned infectious-disease specialist, anthropologist, the recipient of a MacArthur “genius” grant, world-class Robin Hood, Farmer was brought up in a bus and on a boat, and in medical school found his life’s calling: to diagnose and cure infectious diseases and to bring the lifesaving tools of modern medicine to those who need them most.
At the heart of this book is the example of a life based on hope, and on an understanding of the truth of the Haitian proverb “Beyond mountains there are mountains”: as you solve one problem, another problem presents itself, and so you go on and try to solve that one too.
