Like Book Clubs? But hate the time commitment? This non-book club-book club is easy and painless. n-bc-bc will meet four times during the third week of IAP and will discuss topics related to different types of gender violence in our culture. Each evening a discussion will be sparked by two short articles, book excerpts or movie clips. Food and drinks provided!
