10/11: OW Reading Group
This is a reading group for you to finally indulge in the books you never got around to, that you cautiously avoided, or were a little intimidated by, the missed connections. We meet the second Thursday of the month, for around an hour and a half starting at 6:30pm.
For the first book, we are going to be reading Witches, Witch-Hunting, and Women by Silvia Federici. Federici wrote the very popular Caliban and the Witch, and Witches, Witch-Hunting and Women contains the same main ideas about women, capitalism, institutional violence and witches! - supposedly this book is not only an update, but uses more accessible language. If you’ve been curious about Federici come join us at OW LA with this brief under 200 pager!
We plan to have read the introduction and the first two chapters before our first meeting on the 11th. During our second meeting, we will wrap up this book and choose a second book!
