Fall is settling in nicely across the country, and we’ve made it to 7 months of semi-quarantine. Sounds like the perfect time to snuggle in with a good book!
We’re sure you have a long list of books that you’ve been meaning to get to (or finish). But if you need a recommendation, look no further than Fearless, Malala Yousafzai’s new book club. According to an interview she did this August with Bustle, even she has a pile of books she can’t wait to read!
The Pakistani activist for female education and the world’s youngest Nobel Prize laureate (not to mention one of our OG Modern Muses) launched the club this month and will be hosted by literary startup Literati.
In a nutshell: “Fearless amplifies the voices of authors the world too often neglects. Expect to hear from prominent writers and new voices—women with bold ideas, storytellers who show the world from their perspective, and characters who capture your heart.
“We know Malala’s name today because she refused to be silent. Fearless invites you to join a world of women who share her courage, commitment, and hope for the future.”
As a member of the book club, you get a new book delivered monthly and discussions via questions and ideas from Malala in the Literarti app throughout the month. Sounds like a dream book club and perfect for these virtual times!
Join the club, get that reading nook ready and be prepared to be enlightened and inspired!
If you didn’t catch “Battle of the Sexes” in the theater this past fall, then definitely make it a Netflix-and-chill night and watch it On Demand! Even if you don’t follow sports, let alone tennis, we guarantee you’ll find the story of tennis great Billie Jean King super inspiring as a woman or girl. Read more
