    Books Abroad Reading Group - Global Women's Caucus

    You're warmly invited to join the GWC Books Abroad feminist reading group for our October meeting.

    At this meeting, we'll be discussing Claire Messud's The Woman Upstairs. Published in 2013, the novel chronicles the life of Nora Eldridge, a 37-year-old teacher, and artist. Intentionally single and fiercely independent, Nora struggles to toe the line between self-sufficiency and loneliness and eventually finds herself addicted to the affirming attention of new friends.

    This modern work is deeply saturated in the feminist literary tradition of Charlotte Brontë, Emily Dickinson, and Virginia Woolf. As the New York Times puts it, "This psychologically charged story feels like a liberation."

    We look forward to another excellent discussion with all of you on Sunday, October 20, 2019, at 7:30 am EST/1:30 pm CET on WebEx.

    When you RSVP, you will receive the information you need to connect to the book club. Please save this information.
