Book Discussion


January's Social Justice Reading Circle

January 10, 2024

Join us each month for our Social Justice Reading Circle. The 2nd Wednesday of each month we will have a book club-style meetup to discuss a book that relates to social justice across a range of topics and genres. Our selections will include our Stowe Prize shortlist, fiction, and non-fiction works to explore the many ways that writers engage social justice issues. We invite you to meet for refreshments, reading, and lively conversation.


January 10th

6:00 – 7:00 pm

Stowe Center, Day House

Light refreshments provided. 


Our January 10 selection is Everywhere You Don’t Belong, by Gabriel Bump.


Everywhere You Don’t Belong is a startlingly powerful novel that resists every label it evokes: picaresque, bildungsroman, generational family saga, political novel, comic novel, love story. It’s all of those things at once and much more- an instant American classic for the post-Ferguson/Trump era” – Jeff Parker, author of Ovenman.
