For our January selection, we will read a memoir called Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body by Roxane Gay. Gay is an accomplished feminist and bestselling author who has turned her considerable powers on the sometimes painful subject of her own body and her struggles with weight gain in a world that is very unforgiving towards heavy women. She calls on the reader to reconsider the ways they think about food, fat and the body while being brutally honest about her own experiences. The New York Times Book Review called it “intellectually rigorous and deeply moving.” 

We return to our newly renovated building for our January 22nd meeting!  We will start at 7 p.m.  in Room 3, which is downstairs.   (Don’t worry, there’s an elevator for those who have issues with stairs.)

We meet on the fourth Monday of each month. Newcomers are always welcome, and those present select a new text to read for the next month. We read both fiction and non-fiction, always with a focus on social justice. For more information, contact Ian Jaffe: ianjaffe@gmail.com or 303-941-8891.
