Thanks for Joining Us for Persist: the Feminist Book Club!

Persist: A Feminist Book Club is presented by Flatiron Books, publishers of Girls Burn Brighter by Shobha Rao, now in paperback.

An electrifying debut novel about the extraordinary bond between two girls driven apart by circumstance but relentless in their search for one another. Shobha Rao’s Girls Burn Brighter introduces two heroines who never lose the hope that burns within.

 

 

 


That’s it for the latest edition of Persist! It was so great to chat with the many readers who showed up for our feminist book club (hosted entirely on Instagram Live!). This time Thi Bui’s graphic memoir The Best We Could Do was the jumping off point for our discussions of war, refugees, and parent-child relationships through a feminist lens.

We’ll be back on June 3rd with Executive Editor Amanda Nelson, reading So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo. See you then!
