NEHMA will host KUED’s “Book Club in a Box” monthly, beginning September 19 through April 9, 5:00 –7:00 PM. To RSVP or learn more, call 435-797-7239 or email teri.guy@usu.edu

For September, we'll be reading The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd and discussion will be led by professor Ann Austin, PhD, and KUED producer, Nancy Green.

In Sue Monk Kidd’s The Invention of Wings, and KUED’s documentary, Martha Hughes Cannon, we meet remarkable women who pushed against established spheres and lived in worlds of contrast. Discover how these women navigated complex social, political, and religious structures and how they evoked change in spite of disappointment, loss, betrayal, and ostracism. Consider how these women's stories, their themes, and the abolitionist and women's rights movements impact us today. How do they influence our desire and ability to advocate for others and ourselves? And how do we navigate complex social, political, and religious structures with personal integrity?

This box is a collaborative project between KUED and Better Days 2020 and was made possible, in part, by a grant from Utah Humanities.
