Women Explain Things To Me

Reading Group books are available from Left Bank Books in St. Louis, MO at a 20% discount.

As our title ("Women Explain Things To Me") suggests, we read books written by women.  We are not otherwise limited to any genre or type of book - thus far we have read fiction and nonfiction, with topics ranging from astrophysics to social policy.  Our group includes people of both genders and many viewpoints.  Our conversations about the books are not rigid and we often end up discussing a variety of topics when we meet. 

The group is open to new members.  For date and location, please email Shane at shane.m@left-bank.com or Molly at molly.e.carney@gmail.com for more information.
