Feminist Utopia Book Club

Feminist Utopia Book Club meets the first Thursday of every month. Do you dream of a better world? One with equity and strong communities? One that’s anti-racist and anti-capitalist? Authors have dreamt up these worlds and have written books explaining how such worlds might work. Let’s take some time to honor their ideas by reading their works. Let’s use this book club as one way to strengthen our community in Tacoma. This book club will focus on fiction and nonfiction about one or more of the following: feminist utopia, socialism, anarchism, intersectional feminism. Each month, the selected book is available for purchase at King's Books. To see what we're reading this month, go to the main Events page. For questions, contact sweet pea.
