This book club is dedicated to the interests of women, men, LGBTQIA, ethnic minorities, and all those affected by oppressive structures. Through the reading and discussion of selected works, we will explore a wide range of issues related to identity and oppression from a social justice and feminist perspective. We will move beyond standard texts by American and English thinkers, focusing also on political manifestoes, works of fiction, less well-known writers, etc. Members are welcome to read all of the work or some of it and in either case engage in the discussion. Please participate in a way that makes sense for you. In order to make the costs of participation minimal, I’ve made an effort to suggest books that are accessible at public libraries and/or online stores that sell used copies. We will generally take a month to read each work. Each Meetup.com Group’s Organizer pays monthly dues ($15) to run their group, and to help cover these costs, please consider making a small donation every now and then.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
