Or, "Word After Word: A Feminist Speculative Fiction Book Club" — "Speculative fiction" (science fiction, fantasy, horror) has always been a vehicle for writers to explore identity, social inequality, the strangeness of the world, and the hopes and fears for the future. In this monthly book club we'll be reading works of speculative fiction by women and nonbinary writers, discussing the ways these works make us think, feel, and reflect on reality.
Hosted by Haley Cowans: an editor, former bookseller, and secret writer of unpublished fiction, essays, and poems. She has worked on various projects with Two Dollar Radio and also enjoys volunteering at Thurber House. Her lifelong obsessions include Joan of Arc, animated film, and browsing staff recommendations at bookstores. Her most recent obsession is her adopted cat Lulu.
July 19, 2018, 7pm: This month's pick is The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood.
