This book discussion club, led by Julia Callahan (Rare Bird Books), will read an intersectional variety of the latest in feminist lit. Come for the real talk; stay for the snacks.
For May, we are reading Heart Berries: A Memoir by Terese Marie Mailhot. This is Mailhot's coming-of-age on Seabird Island Indian Reservation, living through a catalogue of difficulties, from mental illness to an absentee mother and more. As she says, she is "a woman weilding narrative".
The book is included with your ticket.
Julia Callahan has a BA in English Literature and European History from UC Santa Cruz. She started her publishing career in the Book Soup annex at age twenty-two. She worked her way through the ranks to become the Assistant Director of Marketing. In 2010, she left Book Soup for Rare Bird Books—a downtown L.A.-based publishing and literary publicity company—where she is the Director of Sales and Marketing, an acquiring editor, and does anything else that needs doing.
