The WGRC hosts two book clubs, EveryWoman Book Club and EveryStudent Book Club. EveryWoman Book Club offers staff, faculty, graduate students and community members the opportunity to read and discuss books by women authors. EveryStudent Book Club launched in Spring 2020 with a focus on books with social justice themes.
EveryWoman Book Club has existed for over 15 years. It emphasizes works written by and about women. During the fall and spring semesters, we read texts that focus on different heritage/history months. September is Hispanic/Latinx History Month, October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and November is Native American History Month. In the spring, February is Black History Month, March is Women’s History Month, and April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. During the summer months we still host book club, but our picks are not defined by heritage or awareness months. The books we read range in genre and style.
Pre-Covid, we met on the fourth Thursday of every month at Legends Bistro to eat, catch up, and discuss the book. Now, we’ve moved our meetings on to Zoom. We still catch up and discuss the book, but the delicious food is sadly absent.
EveryWoman Book Club is open to faculty, staff, community members, and graduate students. The Center usually reserves at least one copy for Book Club members at our library, which can be reserved and picked up by calling 205-348-5040. You can join the book club simply by emailing our Program Coordinator, Elizabeth Lester, at email@example.com.
This Fall, EveryWoman Book Club will meet via Zoom. Check out our Fall 2020 lineup!
RSVP by e-mailing Elizabeth Lester.
All UA students are invited to attend EveryStudent Book Club during regular monthly meetings throughout the academic year. Participants can join the Zoom by visiting tinyurl.com/wgrcESBC at 5 p.m. on the meeting day.
