In honor of the 2020 Centennial of the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution granting women the right to vote, the Houston Public Library, the League of Women Voters and the University of Houston Friends of Women’s Studies are launching a citywide Suffrage Centennial Book Club. Houstonians of all ages across our city are invited to gather in their living rooms, coffee shops, libraries, and community centers, to read and discuss one book or film each month in 2020. These conversations will be generative, sharing ideas in real time about why voting matters.
The full list is at this link: Suffrage Centennial Book Club. You can participate on your own, by asking your pre-existent book club to read whichever of the books or watch whichever films look most interesting and then discussing them online, or through our online Ask the Author portal.
