The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman

Tuesday • August 7 • 6:30pm

Mill Creek store

Join Wayward Readers Society for a lively discussion of this month's book!

Rules of Magic is the spellbinding prequel to Alice Hoffman's bestseller Practical Magic.

For the Owens family, love is a curse that began in 1620, when Maria Owens was charged with witchery for loving the wrong man. Hundreds of years later, in New York City at the cusp of the sixties, Susanna Owens knows that her three children (Franny, Jet, and Vincent) are dangerously unique. To protect them, she sets down rules: no walking in moonlight, no cats, no crows, no candles, and—most importantly—never fall in love.

Women & Power: A Manifesto by Mary Beard

Wednesday • August 8 • 6pm

U District store

Join True Grace book club for a lively discussion of this month's book.

Mary Beard traces the origins of misogyny to its ancient roots in Women and Power. As far back as Homer's Odyssey, women have been prohibited from leadership roles in civic life. From Medusa to Philomela (whose tongue was cut out), from Hillary Clinton to Elizabeth Warren (who was told to sit down), Beard draws illuminating parallels between our cultural assumptions about women's relationship to power. Beard asks: If women aren't perceived to be within the structure of power, isn't it power itself we need to redefine? And how many more centuries should we be expected to wait?
