Media Matters: Books and Beyond
Join YWCA's Quarterly Media Matters Discussion Club
YWCA hosts a quarterly discussion around a book or film that focuses on social justice issues. Each of our subjects connect to our mission of eliminating racism and empowering women. The club is open to all, no matter your age!
Why join us?
- “The act of reading in a community can help you read more deeply and better understand diverse perspectives,” John Coleman writes in the Harvard Business Review.
- You read things that you would not otherwise read.
- Some books need to be discussed.
- As Joyce Carol Oates said, “Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another’s skin, another’s voice, another’s soul.”
