For the September meeting of the Cauldron’s feminist bookclub: The Night Library, we will be reading Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado. In these stories, Carmen Maria Machado blithely demolishes the arbitrary borders between psychological realism and science fiction, comedy and horror, fantasy and fabulism.
Get ready for the second meeting of the Cauldron’s feminist bookclub: The Night Library. Up next is Jesmyn Ward’s Salvage the Bones, winner of the National Book Award. This gritty but tender novel about family and poverty in the days leading up to Hurricane Katrina.
