Women Who Read Grand Rapids

Women Who Read GR is a book club and lifestyle group for women in West Michigan who love reading good books, or are interested in reading more and need help getting started! Join WWRGR and bond over books with a dynamic group of women hosted by We Are LIT Grand Rapids multicultural bookshop.

More than a book club, Women Who Read GR is a collaborative of women crossing all ethnic, cultural, and economic backgrounds. The hope is that through reading, a sisterhood will be established as we bond over books.


When global climate change and economic crises lead to social chaos in the early 2020s, California becomes full of dangers, from pervasive water shortage to masses of vagabonds who will do anything to live to see another day. Fifteen-year-old Lauren Olamina lives inside a gated community with her preacher father, family, and neighbors, sheltered from the surrounding anarchy. In a society where any vulnerability is a risk, she suffers from hyperempathy, a debilitating sensitivity to others' emotions.
