What we're about

"Life-transforming ideas have always come to me through books." bell hooks

Powerful characters inspire us to be more than just romantic interests/sexual objects/background characters in our own lives. We want equality in our books! We are intersectional and we talk feminist, class, and race theory to make sure we are good allies to each other and other feminists.

To join us, please be willing to abide by these rules:

1. Come to book club. We want members that respect the RSVP, love a good high-five, can handle a spontaneous dance party and want to make amazing friends.

2. We are intersectional and inclusive of all people. Be respectful when talking about things like sexual violence, race, gender, etc.

3. Three no-shows and you're out. Life is too short. Feminists show up for each other and honor their word.

Few (intersectional) reads for (you) joining our discussions:

Some information about the group is public, but your personal information is not. Your personal contact information is not available even to the Organizer except through Meetup messaging. The private status of the group is permanent and irrevocable.

The "Organizer" is that in name only. This group is run collaboratively by a leadership team that has emerged organically from the membership. Suggestions for new books from all members are welcome and encouraged, as well as ideas for new venues and events.
