Earlier this week a dozen of us began our virtual book club for Anne Bauer’s memoir The Sound of Hope: An Adoptee’s Quest for her Origins. Even if you haven’t read the book or joined the tour*, you may find the themes we are discussing fascinating: civil rights for adopted people, nature vs nurture, alcoholism, adoption agency matching, parent-focused adoptions vs child-centered adoptions. You may also want to weigh in on them from your own perspective. Comments on participating book tour posts is welcomed!
The first batch of posts on this tour, including mine, can be found here. Today we bring you opinions and analysis from the second (and last) batch of book clubbers for you to peruse and comment on. Don’t understand what this means? See this post.
