Women Reading @ CSU is a book club designed for CSU women and non-binary identifying employees and graduate students. This project is focused on appreciating women’s differences, intersectional identities, and diverse experiences.

The book club focuses on reading books that are written from diverse authors and that cover a wide range of identities, experiences, and perspectives. The book club allows participants to explore their own identities, better understand the identities of others, and connect with other folks working at CSU during the book club meetings. One of the unique aspects of this club is that participants are not required to commit to the club itself, but rather can choose which books and meetings to join based on their interest. Three book club meetings will be held in the each fall and spring semesters, with roughly 6 weeks in between each meeting. This book club is funded by the Women and Gender Collaborative Grant Program. 

WHERE DO I BUY THE BOOK?

All books are available now in CSU Bookstore in the Lory Student Center. Each book will have 30-45 copies sold at a subsidized price ranging from $10-$15. We offer this subsidized pricing to make reading and this book club more accessible. For those who do not take the subsidy, there is a 20% discount applied. Please note that the subsidized pricing is reserved for those who intend to attend the book club meeting.  

WHAT HAPPENS AT THE BOOK CLUB MEETINGS?

While each meeting may have a large group of participants, participants will discuss the book in a small group (6-8 people). The participants choose their own groups, and each group will lead its own discussion. Suggested processing questions will be placed with each group.
