About the Event

About the Pandemic Political Education / Disability Justice Book Club

The Pandemic Political Education book club meets on the third Wednesday of each month.

While the COVID-19 pandemic has falsely been declared over, health and disability justice remain and urgent need, especially as more pandemics are expected in our age of climate crisis.

While many forms of community care are needed, this book club aims to provide a space for deepening our historical and political analysis of queer-informed health justice to empower communities in ongoing and future pandemics, while grounding in queer and disabled histories and wisdom.

the reading list will include histories, memoirs, and analysis of the HIV-AIDS pandemic, foundational texts by queer disabled authors, and lenses on queer health justice.

This book club is open to all, with the goal of centering queer and disabled experiences. You don't need to consider yourself an "activist" to join, though much of the discussion of the books will focus on specific lessons we can apply to today.

Please consider bringing a contribution (sliding scale $1-5) for the meeting room reservation at Under the Umbrella. If this is a barrier for you, you are still welcome to attend!

COVID Precautions

It is a requirement for both the bookstore and the book club to wear a mask. An air purifier will be running in the room throughout the duration of the book club meeting.

About Exile and Pride by Eli Clare

Over the course of several personal essays, genderqueer activist/writer Eli Clare weaves together memoir, history, and political thinking to explore meanings and experiences of home, all the while providing an intersectional framework for understanding how we actually experience the daily hydraulics of oppression, power, and resistance.
