This club reads an intersectional variety of feminist lit – fiction, non-fiction, memoirs, etc. – led by publisher Julia Callahan of Rare Bird Books. Join us for fresh insights, perspectives and challenges, and – most importantly – fellowship.
The award-winning Ottessa Moshfegh’s novel My Year of Rest and Relaxation is our September pick. This is the dark and humorous story of a woman’s attempted year-long hibernation, retracting from her life through perscription drugs, sleep, and deliberate inactivity. This is not easy to do in New York and when you’re surrounded by the wrong kind of friends.
HOW IT WORKS:
All book clubs require a ticket, and include the book, snacks/bevs, and a dedicated moderator – to keep the discussion on track! All clubs meet at The Last Bookstore.
You can get your ticket (we’ll ship the book to you!) at this link right here – OR just come in to the store and look for our book club display (near the book tunnel).
If you choose the on-line option (the one with shipping), please send a mailing addy to email@example.com
