Women Reading @ CSU returns for a second year

Women Reading @ CSU, a book club designed for CSU employees and graduate students who identify as women, is starting its second year. Building upon the success of last year’s book club, this project is continuing on with a focus on appreciating women’s differences, intersectional identities, and diverse experiences.

One of the unique aspects of this club is that participants are not required to commit to the club itself, but rather can choose which books and meetings to join based on their interest. Three book club meetings will be held in each fall and spring semester, with roughly 6 weeks between each meeting. This book club is funded by the Women and Gender Collaborative Grant Program.

Any staff, faculty member, or graduate student at CSU who identifies as a woman can be part of the book club.

Fall Semester Schedule

Wednesday, Sept. 27: Americanah by Ngozi Adichie

Tuesday, Nov. 7: This Bridge Called My Back edited by Gloria Anzaldua and Cherrie Moraga

Wednesday, Dec. 6: Rising Strong by Brene Brown.

All meetings will be held noon-1 pm in LSC 386, and will include light refreshments. Feel free to bring your lunch.

Where do I buy the book?

All books are available now in CSU Bookstore in the Lory Student Center. Each book will have 30-45 copies sold at a subsidized price ranging from $10-$15.
