I met the folks from The Feminist Book Club last year at the Twin Cities Book Festival. They had a booth promoting their monthly Book Club Box subscription. I was there promoting LET ME IN. I love the box idea. I have my own boxes–Retreat2Read and Book Club in a Box.
At first I wasn’t sure about this book club–the word feminist sometimes carries baggage from my era of the 60s and 70s. So I stalked them for awhile. I finally bought in a couple months ago, and was put on a waiting list for the boxes, but I got just the book–it was With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedos. OMG. The book was fabulous! And Acevedos is a great writer!
This month’s book is Hood Feminism. I can’t wait to read it.
I got the idea of the box unveiling from Mai Zimmy’s YouTube channel. It was great fun to do, and I hope to do many more!
Here’s one of Mai’s:
