Reading Women is a lively and fun monthly reading group comprised of staff, students, and postdoctoral scholars. Participants choose readings, fiction and non-fiction, which are largely by, for or about women, to read and discuss.

This is a great way to introduce others to your favorite works of literature or to explore new areas of interest. Plus, you get to meet great women from around campus!
