Join our host and SCI BC peer, Lisa and others in our current read, Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keys. The audiobook version of the novel is available on youtube for free.

Here it is in two parts : Part I and Part II.

Charlie Gordon who is about to embark upon an unprecedented journey. Born with an unusually low IQ, he has been chosen as the perfect subject for an experimental surgery that researchers hope will increase his intelligence-a procedure that has already been highly successful when tested on a lab mouse named Algernon.

As the treatment takes effect, Charlie’s intelligence expands until it surpasses that of the doctors who engineered his metamorphosis. The experiment appears to be a scientific breakthrough of paramount importance, until Algernon suddenly deteriorates. Will the same happen to Charlie?

So come along and join in the discussion! Everyone is welcome to join—committed attendance each week is encouraged.
