Feminist Dystopia Reading Group & Discussion Series

February 18 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Feminist Dystopia Reading & Discussion Group

The news getting you down? Combat the isolation of these waning winter months by immersing yourself in a book discussion group! Focusing on women’s continuing struggle for equality, we will read novels by noted authors such as Margaret Atwood and Naomi Alderman. These feminist dystopias will allow us to discuss both how bad things could get and what a feminist utopia might look like. Remember—there’s nothing a good book and a little camaraderie can’t make better. Please plan to attend all four sessions if at all possible so we can foster a supportive and respectful atmosphere. Attendance is capped at 15, so don’t miss your chance to sign up!
Dates of Each Session:

  • February 18, 2020: The Handmaid’s Tale
  • March 24, 2020: Red Clocks
  • April 21, 2020: Vox
  • May 19, 2020: The Power

All sessions will be held at the Southeast Steuben County Library in the Conference Room from 5:30-7:30pm.

Books will be provided for the first 15 people to sign up and they will be yours to keep. The first book can be picked up at The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes, 79 W. Market St. Corning, NY.
