Paper Girls Vol. 1 | Brian K. Vaughan

I've recently decided I pretty much love anything Brian K Vaughan touches. If you like Stranger Things, this graphic novel series is for you! Discussing this with @FelizaCasano at #AmalgamBookClub in Sept- can't wait to get my hands on the next one! 😈 #papergirlsvol1

Finally starting this today! I'm in the usual bookworm's quandary: starting a new book from my TBR, despite the fact that I'm in the middle of about ten other books. 😂 I did finish Hillbilly Elegy though and it was excellent! #tbr #summerreading #readingforfun

Hi guys! Sorry it's been about half a century since I've posted! Just started this this week, and am reading Kindred by Octavia Butler on my iPad at the same time. Felt it might be nice to have one foot in reality and one in fantasy! This is pretty interesting so far- the racial politics of particularizing white poverty still bothers me a bit, but I'm trying to approach this with an open mind. Plus the writing is good. 👍

As I get through this soul-crushing pile of grading, I'm trying to channel Minerva circa book 5, when she's thwarting Umbridge, and book 7 when she duels Snape. All while presumably slaying her pile of grading. ✨⚡️🐱👩‍🏫💃 #witcheswhoslay #harrypotterforever #funkopopvinyl

The Argonauts | Maggie Nelson
post image
Pickpick

This book was phenomenal and a must-read for anyone interested in gender/sexuality/queer studies. Nelson draws from prominent gender theorists like Beauvoir, Sontag, Irigaray, and Butler, weaving them into her own story and experiences. It's a challenging read, and definitely was a hard one for my college freshmen, but overall they seemed to enjoy it! #genderstudies #queerstudies #feministbookclub #LGBTQIA

Bad Feminist | Roxane Gay
post image

Had a very interesting discussion with my students in Gender and Genre about what positions/traits are often perceived as "good" or "bad" feminists. Then we discussed which ones we believed to be true or fair (or not.) Some of them were jokey and others were serious. The photo didn't get it all by hopefully you get the gist! #feministbookclub

kspenmoll So glad to hear you & your students are discussing these ideas! 3y
philawriter @kspenmoll thanks, me too! It was a lively discussion which was pretty cool 😊👍 3y
philawriter Also resulted in a pretty funny discussion of body hair, lol! Not sure I'd ever discussed pubic hair in an academic setting before 😂 3y

A Room of One's Own | Virginia Woolf

There are so many perfect quotes in this book. So timeless and a vital work for all feminists.

And this quote, in remembrance of all the quiet, dutiful work, done by generations of generous women, often entirely unnoticed. I'm reading this, nearly a century later, privileged and thankful.❤ #virginiawoolf #aroomofonesown #feministbookclub

Station Eleven | Emily St John Mandel

The further I get into this book, the more I appreciate the world-building. I love the storyline of Arthur and his multinational, urban coming-of-age story, the intricacies of The Traveling Symphony, and the reverence for art, "because survival is insufficient." ? #stationeleven #worldbuilding #divein

Really enjoyed meeting with @beaniebankbeth @FelizaCasano @SentientCanvas and Roman Columbo at the Amalgam Book Club w/ Girls in Capes! We appreciated how March handles explaining nonviolent resistance and its applicability to the current conversation about activism and the political climate. Would absolutely recommend this- I look forward to reading Book 2 & 3! 👍💯#marchgraphicnovel
