GWP formally launched its book club in January 2020, but as we’ve transitioned to virtual programming, we’ve also taken this opportunity to reimagine the book club. Moving forward, GWP will partner with The Tiny Bookstore and focus on readings specifically related to racial justice.

Join us as we read and discuss Ibram X. Kendi's How To Be An Antiracist. In this book, Kendi’s concept of antiracism reenergizes and reshapes the conversation about racial justice in America -- but even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. Instead of working with the policies and systems now in place, Kendi asks us to think about what an antiracist society might look like, and how we can play an active role in building it. 

About the Justice Book Club: Our facilitator, Lea Bickerton is the owner of The Tiny Bookstore and a practicing attorney with more than 14 years of experience in constitutional and criminal law. The Tiny Bookstore is a Black-owned bookstore in Ross Township, PA. The 300 square foot store has an eclectic mix of books, toys, and collectibles and serves as a community resource in the North Hills.

GWP has purchased a limited quantity of books and participants will have the opportunity to request a book in the registration process. Please note that the GWP-purchased books are available to registrants on a first-come-first-served basis. Once our limited quantity is spoken for, members will still be welcome to register, but will need to obtain a copy of the book at their own expense.

We are committed to making GWP programs accessible to all members. If you have questions, or if an accommodation would be helpful to fully participate in this program, please reach out to Paula or call 412-471-6488 and we will make every effort to accommodate your request.
