Boneshaker Book Club

February 11, 2017 - 9:00am

After a summer break in August, Boneshaker Book Club is back this September to delve into gentrification. The September 23 book club selection is "How to Kill a City: Gentrification, Inequality, and the Fight for the Neighborhood" by Peter Moskowitz. It is currently in-stock at a 20% discount for all readers. Pick up a copy today!

NOTE: Our first choice for this book club was "There Goes The Hood", by Lance Freeman, which is the only recent book on gentrification that **this** Boneshaker could find written by a person of color. Unfortunately that book is indefinitely out-of-stock in our distribution network, which is why: A) We're reading this book, and B) the book club is about two weeks later in the month than usual. We still plan to read There Goes The Hood at a later date, and hope you'll join us for that book club, too. Boneshaker Book Club returns to its regularly scheduled date, the second Saturday of every month, in October. Thanks for understanding!

The Boneshaker Book Club is free and open to the public, welcoming people with diverse viewpoints and perspectives to join us in conversation. We meet at the bookstore on the second Saturday of every month from 9-11am, with each selection available in-store at a 20% discount for the entire month leading up to its meeting. With no central theme, book selection varies considerably by month but does tend to revolve around certain core values that resonate with Boneshaker's mission: anti-racism, feminism, anarchy, communism, queerness, white-supremacy, etc.
