What we're about

This book club was created for women who want to read about the empowerment, equality, and encouragement of women. From learning about the lives of great women through biographies, to enjoying fictional stories of strong female characters, I started this group to meet others who seek a hopeful future through feminism. All types of literature are game and all with a love of reading are welcome. Past books we've read include:
The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, by Irin Carmon & Shana Knizhnik
Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng

June Book Club Meeting

Sar-Ko-Par Trails Park

I have reserved the Lion’s Memorial Shelter to host a socially distanced, safe meeting for June. Based on the last book poll, I chose two books, as they both look fantastic. Kara will lead a discussion for "Rodham" by Curtis Curtis Sittenfeld and I'll lead the discussion for "The Female Persuasion" by Meg Wolitzer. Pick one (or both if you're a fast reader!) and come enjoy some outdoor time. We have enough space to be 6 feet apart depending on the pandemic status. BYO beverage of choice and feel free to bring food. I'll provide finger foods. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
