Because We've Read

From writer, community organizer, and educator Hoda Katebi, Because We've Read is an international book club and digital library focused on raising awareness and understanding of issues in global politics, race, gender, colonialism, religion, and more. Activists, humanitarians, and philologists, as well as those seeking to broaden their worldview, will enjoy this collection, which uplifts and celebrates stories from marginalized peoples. Every two months, Because We've Read announces a new featured book and accompanying multimedia resources as a mini-syllabus on an important topic. Each featured book is available for free digital access (in addition to a digital library of books from previous units and recommended readings). Throughout each unit, participants are encouraged to post their thoughts, questions, and reflections to discussion boards and social media and to participate in a YouTube Live session hosted by Katebi and a guest. As an example, a year-long series during 2021 focuses on Black experiences in trans-national contexts. Readers can join in the ongoing discussion by clicking "Currently Reading" in the hamburger menu, or click "Local Discussion Groups" to find local book club chapters that organize discussions, events, and more. Visitors can keep up to date on Twitter and Instagram (@becauseweveread on both platforms).
