New! Feminist Book Club.  Wednesday, March 20th - Men Explain Things to Me by Rebecca Solnit.  17+ Pick up a copy at the Adult Information Desk

In her comic, scathing essay “Men Explain Things to Me,” Rebecca Solnit took on what often goes wrong in conversations between men and women. She wrote about men who wrongly assume they know things and wrongly assume women don’t, about why this arises, and how this aspect of the gender wars works, airing some of her own hilariously awful encounters.
