Join us for a monthly reading and discussion group facilitated by Casey O'Brien and Krista Grensavitch, lecturers in Women’s & Gender Studies at UWM. Using each book as a starting point, we’ll read with an eye towards developing actionable ideas that might allow each of us to carry discussion topics outside the bookstore.

 

We’ll meet on Thursday, March 9 at 6 PM for the first of what will hopefully be many fruitful conversations!

 

To RSVP, or inquire further, please call 414-263-5001 or email readingsocialjusticemke@gmail.com

 

Please note: you don’t need to have read the book to participate - all are welcome.

 


The first book we’ll discuss is What We Do Now: Standing Up for Your Values in Trump’s America (Melville House, 2017), a series of “short, powerful essays on what we can do now to cope with Trump’s election, and how, moving forward, we can protect our values, our politics, and our country.” The book is edited by Dennis Johnson and Valerie Merians, and includes essays by Gloria Stenem, Ilhan Omar, and Bill McKibben, among many others.

 

Books are available for sale at Woodland Pattern.
