Founded in 2017, the Social Justice Syllabus Book Club invites community members to read together on themes related to equality and justice. During our first series, Kaepernick’s Reading List, we read and discussed books the New York Times described as being inspirational to quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s activism. In the second part of this series, Borders, we read fiction, nonfiction, and poetry about immigration, asylum, and borders. Our third series is Pages Against the Patriarchy. What is patriarchy, how does it affect us, and are there other ways of living? Join us on the last Sunday of every month for insightful conversation. The fourth series of Social Justice Syllabus, Policing and Protest, will begin in September 2020.
Writer and pro bono immigration attorney C. Hudak is the founder of the Social Justice Syllabus Book Club. She collaborated with Third Place Books to develop the SJS reading lists and hosts the monthly discussions.
