Hi all

Nominations are now open for July's non-fiction read (our other July read will be the winner of the Women's Prize for Fiction)

It's an open choice, so any non-fiction book is eligible, just so long as it's by a woman and hasn't been a group read before now.

Criteria:
1. Book must be by a female author (transwomen and women using male pseudonyms are women).
2. No books that have already been group reads (see our list of previous reads).
3. You cannot nominate your own book.

How to Nominate:
1. Give both the title of the book and the author's name when nominating to avoid mix-ups - title only nominations may be missed
2. Please use the 'add book/author' button when nominating - otherwise your nomination may be missed.
3. Please indicate whether you are willing to lead discussion on the book.
4. One nomination per person.

Nomination thread will close on 10 June.

Rape: A History From 1860 To The Present by Joanna Bourke - Happy to lead

Not read it yet but a million trigger warnings for this one, obviously.

I can lead, although due to the topic I think it would be better if a woman / black person led he discussion.

Laura (cupcakesniffer) I nominate Until We Are Free: My Fight for Human Rights in Iran by Shirin Ebadi. But I'd rather not lead discussion


message 6: by Liesl (new)

Liesl | 514 comments I nominate The Darkening Age: The Christian Destruction of the Classical World by Catherine Nixey.

I would be happy to lead a discussion.


message 7: by Rae (new)

Rae Sengele (raesengele) | 15 comments I'd like to nominate Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife by Mary Roach.

I am up for leading, but I'm generally a slow reader and may finish after everyone else.
