Last year we introduced a brand new book group to our calendar- our Women's Fiction Book Group. We read a brilliant selection of books and had some wonderful discussions however, we felt that by focusing only on fiction, we were missing out on some great non-fiction by female authors too. So now we're launching our Books Written By Women Book Group! (BWBW for short!)
Our BWBW Book Group will be meeting on the 3rd Wednesday of every month in the store and everyone and anyone is welcome to join us!
This time around, there will be a mix of everything from fiction to biography to graphic novels to history. We'll also be selecting works by authors who are gender fluid, non-binary, LGBTQ+ and women of colour. If your usual book group is a bit male-centric, then we are here to provide a little more variety!
For February's meeting we will be reading French Milk by Lucy Knisley. Join us at 6pm in store for an interesting discussion.
About French Milk:
During winter break of her senior year of college, cartoonist Lucy Knisleyand her mother embarked on a six-week adventure in Paris to celebrate milestone birthdays: Lucy's twenty-second, and her mother's fiftieth, each angst-inducing for their own reasons. Staying in a small rented apartment with plenty of quirks in the fifth arrondissement, they surprise themselves by falling into their new surroundings with an unexpected ease, content filling their days with visits to the market, cafe, and museums. French Milktells the story of it all through Lucy's illustrations and photos.
Filled with gorgeously charming drawings and photos of the sights, smells, and tastes of the City of Light, French Milkwill make anyone pine for a tall glass of it - with a fondant, of course.
