Our book club meets monthly for in-depth discussions about women's complex lives as reflected through various media. We read and discuss personal narratives (such as auto|biographies, memoirs, and essays) written by or about women concerning their public and private lives. This is a serious look at the genre and how we tell our life stories. My inspiration for this group is the historian Jill Ker Conway, who wrote an autobiographical trilogy spanning her childhood in Australia to her presidency at Smith College. Although the subject matter is women's life stories, both historical and contemporary, all are welcome.
