This is a group for anyone interested in building community while reading awesome books. We'll primarily be reading books with social justice themes, or books by authors who often get left out of mainstream book clubs. I started the group because I'm new to the Bay and want to meet other folks interested in building community through intentional dialogue. Beer, wine, or the beloved mimosa will always be an option at meet ups. Book club meetings will happen once a month, but once we get started, other fun non-book related events throughout the month are always welcome! People of any & all identities welcome. Only read part of the book? Come anyways and participate in the discussion, we all have something to say about the subjects!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
