Description:

Aphasia is a language impairment, usually due to stroke, that affects individuals' ability to speak, understand speech, read, and write.

The Echo Park Branch is proud to offer a book club designed especially for adults with aphasia, because everyone deserves to enjoy a good book. The Aphasia Book Club provides its members with supportive materials to improve their reading comprehension and ability to discuss complex topics.  A single book will be discussed over a period of several weeks.  

The Book Club meets weekly and is open to individuals with mild to severe aphasia.  This program is made possible by a grant from the Library Foundation.

Space is limited.  For more information or to register call the Echo Park Branch at (213) 250-7808 or send an email to fschwarz@lapl.org.
