Emma Watsons boekenclub is begonnen! Leden: Taylor Swift, J.K. Rowling en... jij? Iedereen is namelijk welkom in de club, zo postte ze op haar GoodReads-account:
'As part of my work with UN Women, I have started reading as many books and essays about equality as I can get my hands on. There is so much amazing stuff out there! Funny, inspiring, sad, thought-provoking, empowering! I've been discovering so much that, at times, I've felt like my head was about to explode… I decided to start a Feminist book club, as I want to share what I'm learning and hear your thoughts too. The plan is to select and read a book every month, then discuss the work during the month's last week (to give everyone time to read it!). I will post some questions/quotes to get things started, but I would love for this to grow into an open discussion with and between you all. Whenever possible I hope to have the author, or another prominent voice on the subject, join the conversation. If you fancy it, please join up and participate. Everyone is welcome. I would be honored!'
Heel mooi initiatief, zeggen wij, en tegelijkertijd een hele goede oplossing voor boekentwijfelaars die nooit een nieuwe titel kunnen uitkiezen. Emma's eerste boek in de boekenclub: My Life On The Road van Gloria Steinum.
