Litworks Reading Group

Literacy Works' reading group is a social justice, radical education, focused group. Each year, we will choose four books to read and will meet quarterly for our discussions. This reading group is informal in nature - you don't need to commit to the whole year to join us! This reading group is open to members and nonmembers alike and is free to all. 

Our group will focus on the pressing issues of our time - namely, racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, etc. - and how they intersect with our lives and our work.

Each year, we will choose four books which fit the following:

- a book that focuses on social action

- a book that focuses on new ideas and theories in the nonprofit field

- a book about education and educational theories

- a fiction book.

The Next Read

The next LitWorks Reading Group selection will be a fiction book that addresses important topics in our work. 


We will be reading:

On Beauty by Zadie Smith
