October read: Too Migrant Too Muslim Too Loud by Mehreen Faruqi

The CBR Gals Network presents our seventh book club event in partnership with Highball ExpressGals, Becoming 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 October we will be reading Too Migrant, Too Muslim, Too Loud. A no-holds-barred memoir and manifesto from outspoken senator, trouble-maker and multicultural icon Mehreen Faruqi. As the first Muslim woman in any Australian parliament, Mehreen has a unique and crucial perspective on our politics and democracy. It is a tale of a political outsider fighting for her right and the rights of others like her to be let inside on their terms.

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

Join us for our “Gals, Becoming” book club meetup at Highball Express on 30 September, from 6 to 8 PM.

This event is brought to you by CBR Gals in partnership with Highball Express

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, Becoming” Book Club?

Membership and is free, but each event costs $10 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!
