We are very excited to launch our first ever book club!

Our book clubs will take place every two months, as one way of giving women the opportunity to meet one another safely during the coronavirus pandemic. Book club meetings will take place on Zoom.

Kicking off February 2021

Our first meeting will be on Wednesday 17th February at 7pm. Our first book is “Bad Feminist” by Roxane Gay. Bad Feminist is collection of essays that explore what it means to be a feminist, whilst also enjoying things which may be appear to be at odds with feminist principles. 

In the lead up to the event, we’ll also be sharing other relevant resources including videos, podcasts and articles – perfect if you run out of time to read the whole book, but still want to join in with the discussion!

Keep an eye on our Events page for details of all upcoming book club meetings.

Supporting the Shine Project

Book club meetings are free to attend, but participants are invited to make a small donation in support of our chosen charity, the Shine Project. This charity does some amazing work with teen girls in Bournemouth – their vision is “to see every young woman believe that she is valuable, has skills and talents to offer, understands her ability to make good choices, and discovers the unique beauty in herself and others unencumbered by society’s preconceptions”.  

Our suggested donation is £3 per person, per session. However we recognise the need to be inclusive, especially at a time when many are struggling financially. You are welcome to join us whether or not you are able to donate.

We are really excited to offer this space to socialise with one another and reflect on issues relevant to women, whilst raising money for a worthy cause. For further info or any questions, please email  wanddorset@gmail.com or send us a message on Facebook.
