Join Animal Rights Coalition on Friday, August 15th at 6:30 PM at Masu Sushi and Robata in Minneapolis for a book group discussion of Maus by Art Spiegelman. The book is a graphic novel that looks at a survivor’s experience of the Holocaust, as told to his son. The book is notable in that different groups of people are portrayed as different animals – those persecuted as mice, and those persecuting as cats, for example. The book is an alternate way of looking at the atrocities of the Holocaust, and intersects a wide range of other topics. Given ARC’s focus on intersectionality, we will explore how Maus also discusses race, gender, and religion, along with animals. This is a unique book in its treatment of animals with much for us to discuss. The book is widely available at bookstores such as Barnes and Noble, and also many libraries. We hope to see you there, and you can contact Dylan with any questions:

*** Please take notes as you're reading and come prepared to share. This book discussion will stay focused on the chosen book with minimal side bar conversations so that we can respect everyone in the group and their goal of discussing the book.
