Brown Book Club: “The Handmaid’s Tale”
Jul 8 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

handmaidThe Brown Book Club will meet on Sunday, July 8 to discuss Margaret Atwood’s classic The Handmaid’s Tale (fiction, 411 pp,  1998).   We’ll begin at 6pm with dinner, then go on to discussion.  Please RSVP by Friday, July 6 by contacting the event organizer, who will provide location information. Mention any food allergies, and bring $6 – $8 for the meal.

“In the world of the near future, who will control women’s bodies? Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are only valued if their ovaries are viable. Offred can remember the days before, when she lived and made love with her husband Luke; when she played with and protected her daughter; when she had a job, money of her own, and access to knowledge. But all of that is gone now….Funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing, ‘The Handmaid’s Tale is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and tour de force.'”

Welcome to the Brown Community in DC!

Dear DC area Brunonians,

We are excited to be stepping into the leadership of the Brown Club of DC (BCDC). It is a privilege to be able to build upon the great legacy left to us by our immediate past Co-Presidents, Melea Atkins ’10 and Sean Siperstein ’05. We look forward to their continued service to Brown and wise counsel.

This organization exists to serve your needs and we take that responsibility seriously. We are hitting the ground running, with a variety of social, networking and service events planned for July. We hope that you will make time in your busy lives to participate in the activities that interest you.

We also recognize and appreciate the loyalty and enthusiasm of Brown alums all over the DC Metro area, and we want to provide opportunities for all of you to share your talents and interests with us. Many of our best events started as suggestions from alums just like you. Please connect with us at any of these activities, or contact us directly by email or social media if you have ideas or comments that you’d like to share regarding future events and initiatives.

We look forward to a year of fellowship, learning and fun!
