QTWoC Authored Book Group - Colonize This!
Wednesday, September 5, 2012 - 5:00pm to Wednesday, September 5, 2012 - 7:00pm

When: Wednesday, Sept 5, 2012, 5-7 p.m.
Where: QRC Lounge, Smith Memorial Union Rm 458
Who: queer and allied genderqueer people of color, cis and trans women of color

We have made our plans and checked them twice, and we listened to all of you about what you want and need in a community building, identity specific, book group. So we made some changes and we are ready to get our radical critical minds on before the end of the summer!!!

Come celebrate QTWoC Authors and the first recurring women and genderqueer specific space event at the QRC.  We will be reading books that challenge our sense of self, community, ways of knowing and being, and dare us to think differently or more openly about the world around us. This group is our chance to bond and grow before the beginning of the academic year when the book group will switch gears to activist narratives by QTPoC for our entire QSoC community.

We will have community building informal social chat from 5-6pm and then get down to critical thinking business from 6-7pm. You are welcome for all or part of the time. Please bring snacks or drinks to share if you can. If you don't get the book read in time, we understand. If you have trouble getting a copy, come by the QRC and read ours.
