We're excited to wax poetically about a book written by Adrienne Maree Brown - Emergent Strategy: Shaping Change, Changing Worlds
Adrienne Maree Brown is a social justice facilitator, healer, doula, and self-affirmed pleasure activist based in Detroit. She's also the author of Pleasure Activism: The Politics of Feeling Good and co-editor of Octavia's Brood: Science Fiction from Social Justice Movements
Adrienne's book Emergent Strategy focuses on radical help of self, society, and the planet. The AK Press says "this book teaches us to map, assess, and learn from the swirling structures around us in order to better understand and influence them as they happen."
The Introduction chapter of Emergent Strategy is the focus of our first meeting. We’ll use meeting #1 to encourage members of the book club to get to know each other a little bit, too. **If you don’t read the Introduction of Emergent Strategy before our meeting, it's OKAY. ** The reading isn't mandatory, there will be plenty of chances for you to jump into conversation regardless.
This book club caters to women & femme-identifying readers <3
