Book Discussion


Social Justice Reading Circle


March 13, 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.


March 13th

6:00 – 7:00 pm

Stowe Center, Day House

Light refreshments provided


Our March selection is Ordinary Equality by Kate Kelly.


“Kelly, human-rights lawyer and host of the podcast Ordinary Equality, brings this fantastic introduction to the women and queer people who pioneered the ERA to life. The language is colloquial and showcases her storytelling talents, not at all the fare of academic biographies. Nicole LaRue’s graphics and illustrations combined with Kelly’s storytelling techniques and accessible language make this something teens will also find a fun, engaging read.”

— Kathleen Townsend ― Booklist
