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 is Helen Keller: Rebel Lives , a collection of radical writings by Helen Keller and edited by John Davis.
“Poor little blind girl or dangerous radical? This book challenges the sanitized image of Helen Keller, restoring her true history as a militant socialist. Here are her views on women’s suffrage, her defense of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), her opposition to World War I and her support for imprisoned socialist and anarchist leaders, as well as her analysis of disability and class.”
The book is available for purchase at bookstores like Novel Idea (20% off when you mention it’s for the reading group!) or borrow a copy for free at Levana’s library (come visit us in the Grey House!).
We’re meeting to discuss the book on
Thursday, December 8th at 6:30pm
Kingston Frontenac Public Library, Central branch in the Boucher room (130 Johnson St.)
Everyone is welcome!
The space is wheelchair accessible.
Childcare available — please e-mail us.
