This is going to be a book club to read “All About Love” by bell hooks. If you have heard of her, it was probably something good; if you have read some of her works you probably think this group is a good idea; if you have not heard of her…find the book and join us!
DATES & LOCATION
We will meet three days, the Thursdays March 19 (chapters1-4), April 2 (chapters 5-9), April 16 (chapter 10 – end) between 6:30pm and 8:00pm. This will happen at the Minnehaha Free Space, located at Minehaha Ave 3747.
If you are interested on joining, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (recommended) or just show up. Please share with others that could be interested .

This wonderful film screening took place two weeks ago. Sadly we weren’t able to post this to the website BEFORE the event for various reasons related to miscommunication, time constraints and whatnot (ya know, stuff that happens with volunteer run collectives- can’t always get everything done on time), but we now have a copy of the film at the space. Also, check out their website for more information. Strongly recommend watching this!
