A Book Group of Note

Hey, feminists (and everyone else, too)! In case you've been in search of the perfect book group to join, one offered at Women & Children First might be right up your alley. Not surprisingly, selected texts center on the political and social issues that fascinate, impact, and inform modern feminists. This week's text, The Face of War, written by long-time war correspondent Martha Gellhorn, features a compilation of the writer's vivid war coverage of the Spanish Civil War in 1937 through wars in Central America in the 1980s. Historically, women factor into war narratives as those holding down the homeland despite the numerous and various roles they've played--Gellhorn gets right into the thick of things.

The group gets together on the third Monday of every month at 7:30 P.M in the shop at 5233 N. Clark Street.
