If you like reading, chatting and meeting new people, pop this in your calendar.
The Cork Feminist Reading Group meets on October 9th at Rebel Reads on Father Mathew Quay in Cork City, offering “a great place to talk about feminism and books and meet lovely people”.
Every month the group chooses one fiction and one non-fiction book, with the option of reading one, both or neither. This month the books are:
- Fiction: Dietland by Sarai Walker
The tale of a young, overweight woman who hides behind a skinny-girl persona to write an advice column for a women’s magazine.
- Non Fiction: Living a Feminist Life by Sara Ahmed
In Living a Feminist Life, Ahmed shows how feminist theory is generated from everyday life and the ordinary experiences of being a feminist at home and at work.
New people are always welcome at the book club and the evening begins at 6.30pm at 14 Father Matthew Quay.
