Radical Reading Group

Wednesday, September 26, 2018 | 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm | BMCC Library - S410

Add to Calendar: Google Outlook Apple

The radical reading group began 2 years ago when a group of students, faculty and staff came together to read, discuss, and think together about radical ideas that are all too often not a part of the everyday discourse of our political world. Last year, the radical reading group teamed up with the BMCC Library, and besides hosting the events, the Library also adds each radical book to its collection, and offers limited number of copies of each book to students on a first come first serve basis. The group meets once a month, on the 4th Wednesday from 4-6pm in the library “reading nook” to the left of the main entrance, to discuss a book and other activism and organizing the members are interested or involved in. The group operates on a consensus model of decision making, meaning that everyone has a say in how the group runs and what books are read. For the last year we have aligned out reading to various History/Herstory/Pride/Heritage months on campus.

This year we are reading:
