Social Justice Syllabus: Pages Against the Patriarchy

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 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 first meeting of Social Justice Syllabus: Pages Against Patriarchy will discuss Men Explain Things to Me by Rebecca Solnit on Sunday, August 25 at 7pm. Every month our selected titles are discounted 20% through the date of the book club. All are welcome, no purchase required.

Writer and pro bono immigration attorney C. Hudak is the founder of the Social Justice Book Club. She collaborated with Third Place Books to create the SJS reading lists and will host discussions.
