April Gals Evolving Bookclub (Last Wednesday of April)

April 24 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$15.00

The CBR Gals Network presents the Gals Evolving bookclub at Queenies KingstonGals Evolving is a feminist book club that provides a safe space for gals to grow, learn, share ideas and become fuller versions of themselves. Join us over nibbles and drinks for thoughtful conversation, introspection and laughs with some like-minded gals.

This April, the book choice is Women Talking by Miriam Toews.

In Miriam Toews’s ‘Women Talking,’ eight Mennonite women, victims of two years of sexual assaults by men within their own community, convene in secret to decide their fate: to stay in the only world they’ve known or to escape. Told through the minutes of their all-female symposium and based on real events, this narrative explores themes of empowerment, choice, and systemic oppression, using politically engaged humor. Trigger warnings for this novel include sexual assault, systemic oppression, and the challenges of overcoming profound trauma.

The cost of this event covers food. Drinks will be available for purchase.

Join us for our Gals Evolving bookclub at Queenies Kingston from 6 to 8:30 PM.

 

 

 

About this Event

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? All ages are welcome to attend. Our age ranges typically from 19 – 65. Must be 18+ to drink alcoholic beverages.

What are the conditions of the Gals Evolving Book Club?

Membership and attendance is free, but each event costs $15 to cover the cost of nibbles. Additionally, becoming a member is a monthly commitment. To become a member, attendees must: 

  • Attend three consecutive monthly meetings, to be held on the last Thursday of each month at a central location.
    • Note: After becoming a member, attendance is required at two of every three meetings. We think it’s important for gals to consistently attend meetings in order to form close relationships with other members.
  • Come to each meeting well-versed in the chosen book. Gals can “read” the book in whatever format you want, just come ready to chat about the book.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event? There is plenty of parking but we recommend rideshare or carpool!
