A White Buffalo Project lady is a smart sort of girl who always has a book on her bedside table. So we figured it was about time we all read a book together, and then join up to chat about it. And we're hoping you'll want to join us!
For the very first month of the WBP Book Club, we're diving into Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi.
Heralded as one of the best "books about reading books," Reading Lolita in Tehran shares Nafisi's tale of encouraging women to pursue passion and knowledge, no matter the obstacles that stand in their way. The story follows Nafisi as she gathers some of her most promising female students from an Islamic university where she teaches to read Western literature together and take off their veils, both metaphorically and literally. This is a story of hope and courage in the face of imminent danger and a praise of literature and the inherent power of words.
Join us as we read along! We'll be chatting about the book in our Facebook group, as well as at our first #WBPBookClub meeting on June 30 (details TBA).
Can't wait to read with you!
