Private Groups

Feminist Literary Society

This group is open to new members. Reading group titles will be discounted at 20% off.

The Feminist Literary Society is for anyone that is a feminist or wants to explore feminism and feminist literature!  We are a group of women and men in different cities with the same goal -- to create a space of consciousness-raising where intersectional and inclusive feminism is the first priority.  

We meet the third Wednesday of every month at 7pm.

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.
