PROLOGUE...

t was 1966. Each
month, women of
the Book Club un-
knotted their aprons
and congregated in each
other's living rooms to dis-
cuss a different paperback.
Most were pregnant
when they read The Auto-
biography of Malcolm X.
They discussed metaphor
and racial tension. But
sometimes they digressed to
conversations about Dr.
Spock, husbands and dia-
pers.
After 27 years, members

of the Book Club have
grown up.
These days Annie Ginis
and other members of the
group read and discuss a
great deal of feminist liter-
ature. All have careers.
Some, like Rene Lieberman
and Sharon Schmidt, speak
of grandchildren.
The women of the Book
Club, which meets in the
northern suburbs, have long
since shelved their mater-
nity clothes...but shelve
their books?
Never.
