We've picked the next set of books for our informal Attic Reads book club!

Attic Reads is intended to be a fairly relaxed chance to discuss books through a feminist lens, featuring a mix of newer works of fiction and non-fiction and parts of older feminist "canon" as well as some lighter YA featuring female characters and authors.

We meet at 7pm on the 4th Friday of each month for discussion, and there is a casual reading/quiet work "introverts'" night at 7pm on the 2nd Thursday of each month.

You can find these listed on our public calendar and Meetup group as well, and we'll be sending out reminders via our Twitter!

We will be continuing our theme of alternating between a lighter, more uplifting read and something somewhat more "serious" or tragic month-to-month.

3rd Quarter Book Schedule:

• July 25 - Bright-Sided: How the Relentless Promotion of Positive Thinking Has Undermined America, by Barbara Ehrenreich (Meetup link | Goodreads book page)

• August 22 - Zarah the Windseeker, by Nnedi Okorafor (Meetup link | Goodreads book page)

• September 26 - How to Suppress Women's Writing, by Joanna Russ (Meetup link | Goodreads book page)

Attic members can get out any necessary liveblogging/quote dropping/note-taking/etc in our Slack #bookclub channel, and feel free to update the to-read/suggestion list on our member wiki.

Previous book discussions have covered:
The Second Shift by Arlie Russell Hochschild
Delusions of Gender by Cordelia Fine
Kiki Strike: Inside the Shadow Series by Kirsten Miller
The Revolution Starts at Home: Confronting Intimate Violence Within Activist Communities by Ching-In Chen

And we will be meeting June 27 to discuss Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones.
