Join the LWVN Book Group
December 3, 1:30-3:30 pm, Waban Library Center
The League of Women Voters of Newton invites all community members to join us on Sunday, December 3, 2023, from 1:30-3:30pm, at the Waban Library Center (1608 Beacon Street, Newton), for an intimate gathering and book group discussion on one of the most banned books of the last two years, Gender Queer: A Memoir by Maia Kobabe.
Whether you’ve read the book or not, come engage in a lively discussion of the book (and other books on banned books list, if you are inclined to read others), why it has caused so many schools and libraries to remove it from the shelves, whether LWVN or any League should take a position on book banning, and more.
RSVPs to firstname.lastname@example.org are appreciated!
Following the discussion, we invite all to celebrate with us the holiday season and join in some holiday cheer. We note that the Waban Area’s Council’s annual tree lighting ceremony in Waban Square, right outside the Waban Library Center, occurs at 4:00pm and all are welcome to attend.
