“Between the Covers” Book Club
A cozy space to explore pelvic pain-adjacent topics through novels and works of creative nonfiction.
Lean into sweater weather with a warm and inviting book club facilitated by Sara and Katy, helping professionals trained in human sexuality, counseling, and the art of empathizing with pelvic pain topics. We plan to meet once monthly to discuss topics that are pelvic pain-adjacent, including love, body image, gender roles, and storytelling and communication. Join us the first Tuesday of every month at 7pm EST for a cozy hour and a half of love, support, reflection, and growth.
Please contact Sara at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to join our crew. You may register your spot by paying in advance here. If you would prefer to pick which meetings to attend à la carte, you may do so by sending an email to Sara. We are meeting virtually using Google Meet.
(Note: The readings are suggested, so if you have trouble finishing something, read one book rather than two, watched its movie instead of read the text, absolutely hated the reading, etc. – please feel comfortable attending, the most important thing you bring to us is your empathy, relating, and reflection. We’re looking forward to meeting you!)
