Have you always wanted to read Women’s Work: The First 20,000 years? Or remember being engrossed in A Perfect Red: Empire, Espionage, and the Quest for the Color of Desire and wanting someone else to read it so you could talk about it? Maybe you know the perfect book about the history of textiles, the craft movement, or owning a llama farm.
Introducing the WGM Community Read: a book, nominated and voted on by our members, which we will read together over the coming months. Think of it as our member book club. You can read at your own pace yet share the experience of reading. Midwesterners are readers (proudly!), and we hope this will provide a meaningful connection between us.
Please nominate a book by April 30. In The Draft in May, we’ll include a poll to select our first book. The results will be announced the following Monday. We’ll then follow up with a set of discussion questions and a gentle reading deadline. For those of you who want to connect online, we’ll set up a groups.io book club where you can chat and share.
For anyone who is looking to feel connected, we hope that this collective reading experience can provide a sense of that togetherness. We’ll post the list of all the books that were nominated on the WGM website, after the vote, for anyone who is looking for some new reading material.
Nominate a Book for the Community Read!
Deadline extended to April 30
Do you know a book that would be perfect for our members’ book club? Email your nomination, title and author by April 30 to: firstname.lastname@example.org Note: please do not suggest books that are out-of-print for greater access.
