Short Form Meetup: Dear Ijeawele, or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions
"A few years ago, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie received a letter from a childhood friend, a new mother who wanted to know how to raise her baby girl to be a feminist. Dear Ijeawele is Adichie’s letter of response: fifteen invaluable suggestions—direct, wryly funny, and perceptive—for how to empower a daughter to become a strong, independent woman. Filled with compassionate guidance and advice, it gets right to the heart of sexual politics in the twenty-first century, and starts a new and urgently needed conversation about what it really means to be a woman today." Adichie is a thinker and writer who often addresses gender equality and feminism in her work, and I've been meaning to read some of her books for a while now. This collection of short essays, or "suggestions," which was published last year, will be a quick read for most of us (about 70 pages in total), but I think will spark some interesting discussion. Some reviews/articles on the book include: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/15/books/chimamanda-ngozi-adiche-dear-ijeawele.html https://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/may/04/dear-ijeawele-or-a-feminist-maniesto-in-fifteen-suggestions A few copies available at the Winnipeg Public Library -- get your hold in early to make sure you get one!

What we're about

Calling all book lovers! Let's get together, share a coffee or a drink, and discuss the book of the month in good company.

Beginning with the August 2015 meetup, we will collect $1 club fee per book discussion. This donation will be used exclusively for paying for meetup.com's services. Supplemental gatherings (readings, social events) may require payment for tickets or other materials, but in those cases no $1 club fee will be collected. If you have questions, please contact the organizer.
