🙋🏻♀️who spends their Sunday mornings reading and crafting?
As many of you know, gather here is woman-owned and operated and we have dedicated time and resources to creating an inclusive space, this effort includes open events like book club. gather here’s emphasis this year is to focus on female authors who feature strong protagonists particularly around topics that include identity, ableism, activism, privilege, and ageism. In reading these texts, we hope to foster a deeper sense of empathy not only between the pages of a book, but in each other and the greater community at large.
Here are some of the books we’ll be exploring. We hope you’ll consider reading with us this year.
Our 2019 Book Club is being lead and organized by our friend, Jenna @kraftworkin . Jenna Wolf is a library director at a boarding school just outside Boston by day, helping students discover their passions, do deep, meaningful, and well-rounded research, use cutting edge technology to tell their stories, and to inspire them to develop a reading life. As a member of Mvskoke Creek Nation, textile arts, beading, and other handiwork have always been intrinsic desires, and making, a way of life. She cares deeply about the art of indigenous peoples, and how that traditional work informs every aspect of her process and product. Prior to a career in librarianship, she was a political, crime, and music reporter, in both Boston and Washington, D.C. She lives in Boston with her partner, Sean, and their canine, Jack, and attends at least one rock gig a week. You can find her work at http://kraftworkinkitsch.com.
