Calling All Readers!
February 21, 2014
The National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) book club, Reader with a Cause, provides a platform to discuss equality, empowerment, and violence against women as it appears in contemporary books.
We are currently discussing the memoir-turned-Netflix sensation Orange Is the New Black on Goodreads.
Read the book? Watched the show? Come join our discussion!
Our February-March pick is the latest Young Adult smash: Divergent.
This futuristic thriller features a dystopian Chicago setting and a shy-but-scrappy protagonist, Tris (and the movie adaptation comes out in theaters mid-March!).
Neither of these grab your interest? Our “To Read” bookshelf is filling up! Join us for one of these exciting upcoming reads:
- Currently reading (to be completed by March 31): Divergent
- April 1 – May 15: Lean In – the book version of Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg’s hugely popular TEDTalk, that exhorts women to “sit at the table,” seek challenges, take risks, and pursue their goals
- May 16 – June 30: The Round House – written by Native author Louise Erdrich, this mystery won the National Book Award for Fiction in 2012
