Calling all book lovers and social justice changemakers! Join Novel Ideas, YWCA Greater Pittsburgh’s interactive, insightful book club with a focus on diverse, thought-provoking writers and subjects. Titles include non-fiction, fiction, graphic novels, and memoirs. Most are readily accessible, in various media forms, through our amazing regional libraries. Topics will range from current events and social movements to more personal glimpses of life and diverse people.
In honor of International Day of the Girl Novel Ideas will be discussing Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood by Marjane Satrapi
A beautifully rendered graphic novel, this memoir portrays a young girl’s life in Iran after the radical 1979 cultural revolution. A New York Times Notable Book, A Time Magazine “Best Comix of the Year,” Satrapi shares her experience as an educated female living under a harsh political and social regime.
