GSWS Summer Reading Group

Join the GSWS Summer reading group on July 16 from 3 - 5 p.m. to discuss Agnes Gomillion's YA feminist Afro-futurist novel "The Record Keeper." 

"The Record Keeper—with its absorbing developments and clarion call to freedom—will hold its readership in thrall and have them waiting expectantly for the follow-up. "  - Foreword Magazine Starred Review

"In a sea of dystopian, post-apocalyptic future tales, The Record Keeper stands out. Gomillion's background and advocacy shines through in her debut novel, which paints a stark picture of a divided, authoritarian country that became a world power under the guise of maintaining peace, while calling attention to the very real dark history and current racial problems in the real world."  - Booklist 

The group welcomes current and incoming Pitt students as well as interested faculty members. The novel is available as an e-book through the University Library System and as an e-book or paperback through many booksellers.

To register for this Zoom event, email Nancy Glazener at glazener@pitt.edu.
