Women Writing for (a) Change Book Group
Our WWf(a)C Book Group is continuing with the Winter series on LGBTQ themes. The second session, facilitated by Phebe Beiser, will discuss Rita Mae Brown’s novel RUBYFRUIT JUNGLE. We'll meet on Sunday January 10th, 3-5PM.
Here's a sampling of what you'll find online about this remarkable book:
A landmark coming-of-age novel that launched the career of one of this country’s most distinctive voices, Rubyfruit Jungle remains a transformative work more than forty years after its original publication. In bawdy, moving prose, Rita Mae Brown tells the story of Molly Bolt, the adoptive daughter of a dirt-poor Southern couple who boldly forges her own path in America. With her startling beauty and crackling wit, Molly finds that women are drawn to her wherever she goes—and she refuses to apologize for loving them back. This literary milestone continues to resonate with its message about being true to yourself and, against the odds, living happily ever after.
“The rare work of fiction that has changed real life . . . If you don’t yet know Molly Bolt—or Rita Mae Brown, who created her—I urge you to read and thank them both.”—Gloria Steinem
Although the Book Group is a free offering at WWf(a)C, we would like you to REIGSTER on our website to indicate your intention to attend.
