Books in the Library
Hello! We are Amanda and Jamie. We’ve been dating for 3 years, but have yet to raise a baby book club. We’re both excited for the challenge and excited to meet you all! Amanda is a Montessori School administrator with a background in Women’s and Gender Studies. Jamie is an AmeriCorps Member at the Durham Literacy Center, working with adult basic education and GED students. We both read for fun and try to facilitate casual conversations about bookish content. We hope this club will be a space to do so with little stress and a lot of in depth conversations.
As you may have noticed, we’ve changed the club’s name from “Lesbian Book Club” to “Queer Women’s Book Club.” This is a space where all women- bi, lesbian, pan, trans, and otherwise queer- are welcome. We want this to be an inclusive space in order to create community. We can’t wait to work on building a wonderful community with you all!
