A Radical Librarians Book Club will be starting on Sunday, July 22, at Bluestockings Bookstore on the Lower East Side. We will be meeting at 2pm, on the 3rd Sunday of every month.
Our book for July 22nd is Questioning Library Neutrality: Essays from Progressive Librarians and is available for sale at Bluestockings. The book for our second meeting, on August 19, is Make Your Own History: Documenting Feminist and Queer Activism in the 21st Century.
The Radical Librarians Book Club is a group of aspiring and current librarians, anyone in the information science field, and people who are invested in re-envisioning the traditional library. We seek to examine issues of librarianship from a radical, politically-focused perspective, and build community within the field. We look forward to reading such texts as Radical Cataloging, Revolting Librarians Redux, and more.
Feel free to come check it out, and bring your ideas for future books/discussions.
Email us at RadLibBookClub@gmail.com with questions, or to get on our mailing list (1 email per month, announcing the upcoming books).
Hope to see you there,
Elvis Bakaitis, Erica Saunders, and Sarah Rappo
