While they might be great books, most works of classic literature ignore the experiences of marginalized people. What might we learn by “reading in the margins” and centering the experiences of women, people of color, LGBTQ folks, immigrants, and other underrepresented groups? In this offsite book club, we’ll read and discuss texts that respond to the literary establishment with a critical difference. Best for adults. Drinks and snacks available for purchase. Registration encouraged. Please visit our online calendar to register and for details about the reading this month.
