WHAT: The Levana Gender Advocacy Centre’s feminist reading group meets once a month to discuss a different text and the book we are reading this month (and for International Women’s Week) is Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza by Gloria Anzaldúa.
“Rooted in Gloria Anzaldúa’s experience as a Chicana, a lesbian, an activist, and a writer, the essays and poems in this volume profoundly challenge how we think about identity. Borderlands/La Frontera remaps our understanding of what a “border” is, presenting it not as a simple divide between here and there, us and them, but as a psychic, social, and cultural terrain that we inhabit, and that inhabits all of us.”
The book is available at bookstores like Novel Idea or borrow a copy for free at Levana’s library (come visit us in the Grey House!) and libraries like KFPL Central branch and Stauffer.
