Dirty Girl Adventures Book Club
December 3, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The Dirty Girl Adventures Book Club at Compass Point home of Dirty Girl Adventures at 800 North Kansas Avenue in Topeka is open to everyone! Take a break and talk about some great books in a casual, no-pressure environment.
Meetings start at 7pm after our weekly yoga class (5:45-6:45). Karen Stockwell-Withers, a Dirty Girl member, will be leading the book club on December 3rd when we discuss Welcome to the Goddamn Ice Cube by Blair Braverman.
Brief Summary: By the time Blair Braverman was eighteen, she had left her home in California, moved to arctic Norway to learn to drive sled dogs, and found work as a tour guide on a glacier in Alaska. Determined to carve out a life as a “tough girl”—a young woman who confronts danger without apology—she slowly developed the strength and resilience the landscape demanded of her.
Weaving fast-paced adventure writing and ethnographic journalism with elegantly wrought reflections on identity, Welcome to the Goddamn Ice Cube captures the triumphs and the perils of Braverman’s journey to self-discovery and independence in a landscape that is as beautiful as it is unforgiving.
The bar will be open for beverages, feel free to bring your dinner or a snack to share. This is a free event! We hope to see you there for a time to connect with other women by discussing a great book.
