Welcome to The We Spot book talk! This is a wonderful way for us to continue to learn and grow together. We will be focusing on non-fiction, growth focused books. Books that are going to expand our minds and challenge us in a lot of different ways.

This is a SAFE place to discuss our thoughts. A place where growth and new ways of thinking are the goal. Please take that into account if you’re considering joining us. We will only accept loving, compassionate, supportive conversation.

We will be reading a new book and meeting about every 5 weeks. That gives us a week to get the book and a month to read it. We will then meet to discuss. Watch the Facebook events for information on the zoom link to connect. If you don’t have Facebook, message us for the link!

Upcoming Books:

*** I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness by Austin Channing Brown – (Discussion date 04/13/2021 @ 7:00pm MST)

The We Spot Book Club Previous Books:

Educated by Tara Westover 

Do We Recommend? YES!

Collective Thoughts: This book was a powerful memoir and many of us felt like we couldn’t consume it fast enough. All the things we went through to get to the place of obtaining her Doctorate Degree was very inspiring. We wanted to know more about where she is today because we all fell in love with her and felt invested in her experience. Some members felt that the number of things that happened were unbelievable, and that’s why I think it makes the story so engaging. You just can’t believe what’s going to happen next. 

 

The Awakened Woman: A Guide for Remembering & Igniting Your Sacred Dreams by Dr. Tererai Trent

Do We Recommend? YES!!

Collective Thoughts: This book is one we agree we will come back to over and over again. Very inspirational and motivating. There are so many wonderful activities throughout the book to help us focus on our sacred dreams and brining them into reality.

 

 

The Awakened Woman

Know My Name by Chanel Miller

(TRIGGER WARNING FOR THIS BOOK! Contains explicit content about sexual assault)

Do We Recommend? YES!!

Collective Thoughts: This book is IMPORTANT. It will stretch you and bring so much new awareness to the reality of sexual assault and rape culture in our society. A beautiful, heart wrenching, and must read book for all humans!

 

 

Untamed by Glennon Doyle

Do We Recommend? YES

Collective Thoughts: This book is was literally life changing for some of the people in our group. A MUST read. So empowering for women and living an authentic life!

 

The We Spot Book Club

Do We Recommend? YES

Collective Thoughts: This book is very long and a bit redundant at times. There are a lot of statistics and good information about the inequality of women. We all learned something new and were challenged in a hard but good way.

Do We Recommend? YES! 

Collective Thoughts: Heartbreaking and eye opening! A must read to expand our view of the what’s happening in the world and understanding the true heart and meaning behind the development of the Black Lives Matter movement.
