As I announced a couple of weeks ago, our online feminist book club has launched. Radical Readers & Feminisms for Dummies will be our way to read books of feminist interest and discuss them together even though we're all miles apart. Since the launch, those who signed up by taking the survey I created have been introducing themselves and adding their book suggestions. Now I'm inviting all of you to do the same.
You can check out the group blog for the book club. As we read the books each month, a few of us will post our reactions on the blog and encourage discussion in the comments. We also have a group on Goodreads where folks can start discussions about the books we read, as well as other books and topics.
For September, we're reading Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi. Chally from Zero at the Bone is one of the group bloggers, and she has a post up for those of us not familiar with Iranian/Persian history. It should serve as a good foundation for some of the issues that come up in Persepolis and you should definitely check it out.
So read along and discuss. Look forward to seeing you at the blog or group. Happy reading! =)
