The Peterborough Globetrotting Book Club aims for insightful literary discussion and is only for fun. It is totally free, but you have to sign up ahead of time because there is a limit of 16 participants per virtual meeting. This group is meant to be extremely supportive and friendly and all attendees will have the opportunity to participate in discussion. In the non-faction book "First They Killed my Father", Loung Ung writes about her childhood experiences in Cambodia during the Khmer Rouge occupation in the 1970s. On a hot mid-April day in 1975, the Khmer Rouge invade Phnom Penh, forcing the Ungs and many other families to evacuate for fear of being killed. Loung, her parents, and her six siblings grab what they can, climb into their truck, and leave the city.
