A book is a friend, a parent, a lover, a coach, a teacher, an open ear, a helping hand, a light in the dark.
One of the first projects that we wanted to start since the first brainstorm meeting from The Wave was a Book Club. For us this means a lot more than just sharing the passion for reading: it is also reading about women throughout history.
Most of us in school read just white men literature, all our museums are filled by the same group of artists. Doing a feminist book club is reading different realities and points of view.
We choose every 2 or 3 months a new book to read and gather to share our thoughts during our reading.
The book selection is open for our community to choose, and the physical space we do our gatherings is in the Bibliotheek Witte Dame, Eindhoven Library, who have been an excellent support for us to do our meetings.
