The Women Faculty Book Club at FIU, like so many others, meets to affirm our membership in a community of book lovers. With each work we discuss, we deepen our shared experience, learn more about each other and ourselves, and honor the heritage of women’s creativity across eras and cultures.
For more information about joining the book club, please contact Joyce Peterson at email@example.com.
The date for the September Women Faculty Book Club (our first of the 2018-19 Academic Year) is Sunday, September 16, at 7 p.m. As usual, we gratefully accept the hospitality offered by Judith Stiehm and meet at her home (call Judith for admission to the building). Please see prior WomBook Mailing List email for details.
We will be discussing our summer reading theme: Different writers offer their “enthusiasm” for a writer they consider under-appreciated and who deserves a more extended readership. Some books on the summer list are long out-of-print and recently reissued as Virago or NYRB Classics. We chose five books for summer reading options, some from The NYT’s Enthusiast column and some we have added - all are by 20th century British women writers.
Find below a listing of the AY 2017-18 Women Faculty Book Club books, or browse our picks from previous years back to 1991. The past-year publications encompass our chosen record of women’s writing over more than 25 years. We hope you find it a useful guide to leisure reading.
