Emergent Strategy: Shaping Change, Changing Worlds
by Adrienne M. Brown

Selected by bookseller Harmony
"What do Taoism, permaculture, science fiction, and Black Lives Matter have in common? This book! Self and collective transformation become fused in this intersectional book about how important collaborative relationships, transformative justice, decentralization, deep listening, intentional adaptation, and radical honesty are to organizing for social justice."

The book for September is:

The Beauty Myth: How Images of Beauty Are Used Against Women
by Naomi Wolf

Despite evident progress of the women's movement, writer and journalist Naomi Wolf is troubled by a different kind of social control, which, she argues, may prove just as restrictive as the traditional image of homemaker and wife. It's the beauty myth, an obsession with physical perfection that traps the modern woman in an endless spiral of hope, self-consciousness, and self-hatred as she tries to fulfill society's impossible definition of "the flawless beauty. Originally published in 1991, this classic of feminist literature continues to be relevant and vital to today's discussions of gender equality.

The meeting will take place on Saturday, September 30 at 3:30pm. All readers are welcome!

Books for the group are 10% off the month prior to the discussion.
