You probably know Emma Watson as Hermione, the brainy, well-adjusted wizard in training from Harry Potter, or from any of her other acting forays. Recently, she’s also been in the news for her strong stance on feminist issues, and is constantly championing for equality. But did you know she’s starting a book club?
OUR SHARED SELF is her latest project, a fun Goodreads group that aims to explore feminist issues in literature. The book club will read one book each month with that theme in mind, then discuss questions and have conversation during the last week of the month. And it’s already started. Her first book club pick is Gloria Steinem’s MY LIFE ON THE ROAD.
All you have to do to be a part of the conversation is get a Goodreads account and join her group. Then, get reading! This is probably going to be a fascinating (and popular) club, so don’t be afraid to get in there and add to the comments. Click on the links above to go right to the page to find out more.
Read with a conscience this year!
