If you know anyone outside of IW that is interested in joining our book club just have them email firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll add them to our mailing list! We read a new book every month and we alternate between fiction and nonfiction. Members can skip some books/months as needed!
This months meeting will be held on Monday, March 25 from 6-8pm. It will be in the RBC Vault here at Innovation Works.
By popular demand and in honour of International Women’s Day, this month we will be reading Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay.
Bad Feminist has a 3.94/5 score on Goodreads.
"Pink is my favorite color. I used to say my favorite color was black to be cool, but it is pink—all shades of pink. If I have an accessory, it is probably pink. I read Vogue, and I’m not doing it ironically, though it might seem that way. I once live-tweeted the September issue."
In these funny and insightful essays, Roxane Gay takes us through the journey of her evolution as a woman of color while also taking readers on a ride through culture of the last few years and commenting on the state of feminism today. The portrait that emerges is not only one of an incredibly insightful woman continually growing to understand herself and our society, but also one of our culture.Bad Feminist is a sharp, funny, and spot-on look at the ways in which the culture we consume becomes who we are, and an inspiring call-to-arms of all the ways we still need to do better.
