Low-Maintenance Book Club: Selections from Difficult Women

Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

Kick off the new school year with us at our upcoming meeting on Wednesday, September 26th, from 5:30-7pm. We'll be reading selections from award-winning novelist and essayist Roxane Gay's Difficult Women, her debut collection of short fiction. 

Although we'll plan to discuss "I Will Follow You," "Difficult Women" and "North Country," you should feel free to read as much or as little (we are low-maintenance, after all) of the work as you'd like. 

We are also featuring a giveaway--the first ten people to RSVP for the meeting will receive a free copy of the book!
