Come to the launch meeting of Agitate!’s book club!
Do you read books? Do you wish you read more books? Are you interested in reading interesting books about interesting issues by interesting authors? Yeah!
Some important info:
- books that will be chosen will address intersectional issues ie. queerness, race, class, etc.
- discussions will be from an anti-racist/anti-oppressive perspective
- it is open to primarily indigenous peoples and people of colour, though allies may join. but this ain’t no anti-oppression workshop, yo. hah. no seriously.
We want people to be involved in how the book club runs and help us pick books. Our first book has already been chosen, it will be “Cereus Blooms at Night” by Trinidadian-Canadian author Shani Mootoo. Our first meeting will be about meeting each other and talking about what we would like the book club to look like. You do not have to have anything read by the first meeting.
Books can either be purchased at some of our lovely local bookstores, or you can rent them from the library. Agitate has a couple of copies of our first book to lend out, so if you are having trouble accessing a copy, please let us know by email or msg here on facebook.
Location has been decided, we’ll be having it at Venus Envy, corner of Bank & Lisgar! There will be some light snacks.
