November's Book Club
Hello all, Great turn out at last month's book club! It was a really nice evening, so thank you all for coming. This month we are reading How not to be a boy by Robert Webb. This should be a fun, insightful, easy read and is highly rated. As always we will be doing a voluntary collection for DASH - a charity which supports people dealing Domestic violence. Beth will also be collecting sanitary items for the Windsor Homeless Projects so bring a box of pads or tampons along if you would like to donate :) Blurb below: Rules for being a man: Don't cry Love sport Play rough Drink beer Don't talk about feelings But Robert Webb has been wondering for some time now: are those rules actually any use? To anyone? Looking back over his life, from schoolboy crushes (on girls and boys) to discovering the power of making people laugh (in the Cambridge Footlights with David Mitchell), and from losing his beloved mother to becoming a husband and father, Robert Webb considers the absurd expectations boys and men have thrust upon them at every stage of life. Hilarious and heartbreaking, How Not To Be a Boy explores the relationships that made Robert who he is as a man, the lessons we learn as sons and daughters, and the understanding that sometimes you aren't the Luke Skywalker of your life - you're actually Darth Vader. 'Quite simply brilliant. I (genuinely) cried. I (genuinely) laughed out loud. It’s profound, touching, personal yet universal … I loved it.' - J. K. Rowling

What we're about

This book club welcomes everyone; the purpose is to get together once a month for the opportunity to engage in lively conversation, and to learn lots along the way. This is not a pretentious club - our aim is to open a platform to learn more about feminism and meet other interesting people!

We will meet on the last Tuesday of every month at 7:30pm at the Royal Oak in Windsor. We are really looking forward to meeting you all :)
