Boneshaker Book Club

June 9, 2018 - 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 typically meet at the bookstore on the second Saturday of every month from 9-11am but have been known to change our meeting time on occasion. Each selection will be 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, fighting white-supremacy, etc.

The July 21 book club selection is "The Will to Change" by bell hooks. Copies will be in stock soon, and will be available to all readers at 20% off their retail price until the 21st. (This month's book club is being held on the third Saturday in July because we're still waiting on copies of the book. Thanks for understanding!)

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Everyone needs to love and be loved -- even men. But to know love, men must be able to look at the ways that patriarchal culture keeps them from knowing themselves, from being in touch with their feelings, from loving. In The Will to Change, bell hooks gets to the heart of the matter and shows men how to express the emotions that are a fundamental part of who they are -- whatever their age, marital status, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.

With trademark candor and fierce intelligence, hooks addresses the most common concerns of men, such as fear of intimacy and loss of their patriarchal place in society, in new and challenging ways. She believes men can find the way to spiritual unity by getting back in touch with the emotionally open part of themselves -- and lay claim to the rich and rewarding inner lives that have historically been the exclusive province of women.

A brave and astonishing work, The Will to Change is designed to help men reclaim the best part of themselves.
