March marks International Women’s Day, so the theme for this month’s Book Club is Womxn of the Zodiac, covering a glittering, star-studded smorgasbord of feminist writers and literary creations in all their shiny astrological glory. Whether you love a Leo or want to crown a Capricorn winner, put your best book forward and prepare to battle.
Join us for the launch of The Book Club’s Book Club, a new monthly intersectional feminist book club collective for radical readers who love reading but don’t always get the down time to do it. Celebrating working class, queer, disabled, poc, fash-smashing feminist writers and writings, we subvert the traditional book club format with a quick-fire round of 2 minute slam-style slots for participants to pitch their favourite feminist writer, writing or character. Throwing a shelf load of books into the pile, we build our own bibliography and finish with a book swap, furrowing into the farthest corners of feminist writings past and present.
Want to sign up for a slot? Email: firstname.lastname@example.org for the chance to compete. Fear not - you can also turn up on the night for open mic, or just put your feet up and enjoy
