Women's History Month at the Book Exchange Library

In honor of Women's History Month (and International Women's Day, on March 8) we'll discuss representation of female authors in our collection starting at around 5pm.

 Our "classics" section, for example, is heavily weighted towards male authors. We'll talk about what makes certain books "masterpieces" and preconceptions as well as misconceptions about female authors. Finally, we'll vote on which books, written by women or not, deserve to be recategorized as "classics."

Our event will begin at 3:30pm and end at 6pm. For the duration of the event, our library will be open for checkouts and returns. If you have your heart set on borrowing a book, be sure to arrive at least 15 minutes before closing!
