Dotters Book Club

Dotters Books Emma Cline Zadie Smith The Girls On Beauty Book Club

The Dotters Book Club was started in the winter of 2017, when Elizabeth de Cleyre was a newbie in town and wanted to make some friends. Becca at Red's Mercantile graciously offered to host it at the shop, and we quickly outgrew the space. Friends were made, and the idea for an indie bookstore was born! 

For 2017, we read fiction or nonfiction written by a female author each month. We created a reading recommendation guide based on our 2017 book club reads.

For 2018, we're reading books written by authors of color. Unfortunately, women and minorities are wildly underrepresented in publishing. By varying our reading habits, we're expanding our worldview and perspectives, and showing publishers that there is a demand for narratives as diverse as the globe itself.
