Book of the Month: Geek Love by Katherine Dunn

6:00pm

Co-Owner Rebecca is super excited to talk about this - it's one of her favorite books!
"A cult favorite by the recently deceased Katherine Dunn. This story is so strange and vexing--with this freak show dancing around the heart of it--yet, the real story is one of family, respect, claiming agency in a world that eternally shuns and fears you. It's a solid read. You'll remember it forever."

 

Sci-Fi/Fantasy: Binti Trilogy by Nnedi Okorafor

7:00pm

Nnedi Okorafor is amazing. A renowned author at the forefront of Afrofuturism in modern literature, she imbues each of her stories, novellas, and novels with an amazing sense of place and each of her characters with an amazing sense of self. She's our fave, and we are extra excited to be discussing all three of her Binti novellas with y'all. Don't worry, they're short! And to help you get to all three, we're offering 10% off the novellas for this book club! 

 

Feminist: The Argonauts by Maggie Nelson

8:00pm

Back by popular demand, The Argonauts is one of our favorite feminist books to talk about! Discussion leader Rivka says, "Maggie Nelson's The Argonauts was one of the most honest, revealing, and inspiring memoirs I've ever read. While it is relatable, her exploration of queer romance, love, intimacy, and kinship, with the help of personal experience and theory, makes for a thought-provoking and wholesome read."
