We participated in a delegation of librarians to China in 2007. The People to People International (PTPI) organization PTPI has been close to our hearts ever since. The tour, our guides and our fellow travelers were fantastic in all respects. The organization just continues to amaze with timely and innovative ideas that bring people together from across the globe.
PTPI has initiated a way for members to "communicate with members about international topics and gain unique insights into the cultures explored through readings of PTPI's Global Book Club." I think this is exciting and a very pleasurable way to combine our love of books with budgets that, for now at least, limit our world travel opportunities! You don't have to be a member of PTPIto sign up. Registration for the Global Book Club is free.
