If I Bring You Roses
"If I Bring You Roses is more than a love story powerfully and insightfully told. It is also a story about how class and ethnic discrimination impact relationships between men and women.
The message is important; the writing is masterful...I highly recommend this book to readers interested in romance grounded in reality, in Latina culture, in civil and human rights for all people regardless of gender, race or ethnicity and to readers who are just interested in reading a really good, engrossing book." Midwest Book Review

This month we will be reading from Marge Piercy's
Women on the Edge of Time.
Published in 1976, this book is a classic feminist novel and a bold, speculative look at the future.
Woman on the Edge of Time is often described as a feminist utopia, although it questions society's ability to achieve utopia. The reader comes to realize that it is the responsibility of present day individuals to change society's future.
