Connect around discussion of contemporary issues through an exciting series of books published by Between the Lines.

Our new reading club offers physical, virtual, and mental space to engage with thought-provoking writing about contemporary issues. Drop in for one or all five discussions about books exploring gender, capitalism, police abolition, colonialism, the housing crisis, class and more.

Sara Swerdlyk, Publicity and Promotions Manager at Between the Lines will join us the following Saturdays, 10 am – 12 pm, to lead discussion of five exciting titles from the Between the Lines book list.
