Boneshaker Book Club

February 11, 2017 - 9:00am

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, and each month's book will be available in-store at a 20% discount for book club members. 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.

For the May 13 meeting, we're reading No More Heroes: Grassroots Challenges to the Savior Mentality, by Jordan Flaherty.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
How can we build a better world? And why do so many people with privilege end up making things worse when they try to help? It’s called the savior mentality, and Jordan Flaherty finds it in FBI informants, anti-sex-work crusaders, Teach For America corps members, and out-of-touch journalists. No More Heroes celebrates grassroots challenges to these saviors and highlights movements focused on real, systemic change from the Arab Spring to Black Lives Matter.
