Feminist Foundations:
2022 Book Club

(Tuesdays: 1/11, 2/8, 3/8, 4/12 )
4pm Pacific | 7pm Eastern

Led by Linda Joy Myers (National Association of Memoir Writers) and Brooke Warner (She Writes Press), this book club will be the most important and foundational one you’ve ever been a part of—if you’re seeking to write your memoir. This is an opportunity to familiarize yourself with some of the most important memoirs that have shaped the genre and profoundly influenced women memoirists for decades.

Linda Joy and Brooke chose these four books for how impactful Woolf, Angelou, Jong, and Hong Kingston have been to so many women. Each of these memoirs, in their honest and brave portrayals, opened doors for other women writers and shone light onto what was possible for those of us who followed in their footsteps. Don’t miss this opportunity to kick off 2022 by reading these foundational books, and joining these conversations (and teachings) about how you can learn from their legacies.
