Feminist Book Club: Bell Hooks "Communion"
The feminist book club debates books and serves as a
venue for the
discussion of feminism rather than a forum for
affirming any predetermined
feminist platform. We make no claim about what
feminism is or whom it
serves, rather we rely on feminism (feminisms) as a
lens for
examination. We read theoretical texts, literature and
review primary works. We
also watch movies and discuss them in tandem with
readings. The book club
is open to everyone, and welcomes people of all
genders, political
persuasions and levels of familiarity with feminism.
We (usually) meet on
the first Sunday of every month at Bluestockings, but
are meeting on the
second Sunday in July!. Books are chosen by consensus.
The July reading
is "Communion: The Female Search for Love" by Bell

ideas with the editors and help form a solid bridge
between Eastern and
Western sensibilities for the new millennium.

Free Markets, and

Reading Dave Zirin “What’s My Name, Fool?"

political - features
of our society. Drawing on original interviews and the
histories of a
range of athletes, such as former heavyweight champ
George Foreman,
Olympic athlete John Carlos, NBA player and anti-death
penalty activist
Etan Thomas, antiwar women’s college hoopster Toni
Smith, ball player
Jackie Robinson and tennis star Billie Jean King, the
book recounts the
social impacts of those who charted new paths through
their athletic
abilities and their outspoken views. Dave Zirin is the
regular sports
commentator for Air America’s "So What Else is News?".

society that is infinitely creative, truly democratic,
