CODEPINK Women for Peace (www.codepinkalert.org) has just launched a new bookclub to develop our ideas, continue our interweaving conversations about war and peace in a new – yet very familiar – way. Pink Pages Book Club will begin with a focus for the first 3 months on books about Afghanistan and Pakistan. We are encouraging folks to get together in their own communities as well as joining our virtual book club online. Our first book is "The Storyteller's Daughter" by Saira Shah. Sign up here to host a book club in your community and/or join our online book club!
