Don't Forget the NEW LOCATION
Hey hey Readers! After months and months of talking about it, we're finally getting around to our study of the oldest profession:
Paying For It: A Comic Strip Memoir About Being a John (http://www.amazon.ca/Paying-Comic-Strip-Memoir-About-Being/dp/1770460489/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1376444885&sr=8-1&keywords=paying+for+it), by Chester Brown and Robert Crumb (That's right folks, another graphic novel!)
Rent Girl (http://www.amazon.ca/Rent-Girl-Michelle-Tea/dp/0867196203/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1376445013&sr=1-1&keywords=Rent+Girl+Michelle+Tea), by Michelle Tea and Laurenn McCubbin (Another graphic novel? Why not!)
So it seems folks (including moi) are having a hard time finding these. So, what we'll do is first: keep looking, and second: let's also add:
A Child's Life and Other Stories (http://www.amazon.ca/Childs-Life-Other-Stories/dp/1583940286/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1378158785&sr=8-1&keywords=a+child%27s+life+and+other+stories+by+Phoebe+Gloeckner), by Phoebe Gloeckner
This one isn't directly related to prostitution specifically, but it does deal with subjects relating to sex and victimization, which is certainly relevant to the them. Thanks to Frankie for the suggestion.
If the RSVP list is full don't hesitate to jump on the waiting list. You'll be surprised how fast the list turns over as the big day approaches (especially the last 24hrs!). So if you DO wind up on the waiting list you'd better keep your calender clear.
Just a brief note on our methods and madness:
The point of choosing more then one book is to engage as many different tastes as possible. The added bonus is that it gives us a platform for discussion - which is why the books we choose are always thematically similar.
We don't expect you to always have the time to read both monthly book selections. You can rest assured that our conversations are so deliciously booky in general, that you really only need to be a lover of the written word to find something to get down and dirty with.
That said, its entirely up to you how much you're going to be bothered by spoilers, or discussion about books you haven't read, because we don't hold back! [aka: SPOILER ALERT]
So if you want to come out - even if you haven't read the books - by all means c'mon out! Even folks who haven't read any of the books on offer that month at all have left having had a great time!
* All of our books are chosen as a collective at each meeting. We're like the Borg that way.
