15813 NCCAT Online Book Talk: The Choice - Virtual

When: July 1 - September 17, 2021

NCCAT Online offers NC educators a place to come and share ideas while reading a book together to help us learn and grow in our personal and professional lives.

Our third book will be Dr. Edith Eva Eger s The Choice. Eger, a Holocaust survivor, shares her extraordinary story in this inspiring testament of the human spirit s resilience and the power of choice in our lives. The Choice is more than a memoir; it is a powerful book that teaches readers how we can be imprisoned in our own minds and shows us how to find the key to freedom. Desmond Tutu states, "The Choice is a gift to humanity.  One of those rare and eternal stories that you don t want to end and that leave you forever changed."

This online self-paced course will begin on July 1st and will run until September 17th. There will be three Zoom meetings, where participants can come together face-to-face to discuss the book, ask questions, and read-aloud important sections. For those who cannot meet, all of the information is in the course broken down into modules.

The Zoom meetings are for an hour and are informal and offer a safe space for participants to participate. The dates for the Zoom sessions are:

If participants post to all discussion boards and submit all reflection assignments, they will earn 20 contact hours.

You can purchase the book online, from independent bookstores, or check it out from your local library. There are electronic and audio versions available as well.
