DC NOW Book Club

Do you enjoy reading? Are you a feminist? Do you live in the DC area?

Then this is the book club for you!

Join us for a feminist analysis of contemporary and classic literature and non-fiction. Don't have a PhD in Women's Studies? That's okay. Our personal life experiences will guide our discussion just as much - if not more - than formal feminist theory.

 The book club usually meets on the fourth Thursday of every month from 7:00 - 9:00pm (as of January 2013). To attend one of our casual get-togethers, please join our Google Group at http://groups.google.com/group/DCNOWbookclub. Please email washingtondcnow at gmail dot com with questions or comments.
