Announcing OWHE Book Club's Reading Timeline for Difficult Women!

Dear OWHE Book Club Readers!

Thanks for being part of the OWHE Book Club! We’re gearing up for the second OWHE Book Club read of 2018! This time we’re reading Difficult Women, a book of short stories by Roxane Gay.

This book is amazing, but also can bring up strong emotions. I’m excited to read it with all of you and talk about it during our Online Book Chat on November 6th, 2018. If you join us on Facebook for the event, you’ll see the questions leading up to the online book club chat!

As for the reading plan, we’ve got you covered!

  • Week One - October 8-12 - Pages 1-75
  • Week Two - October 15-19 - Pages 77-128

  • Week Four - October 29 - November 2 - Pages 215-302
