September Adult Book Group
Wednesday, September 27th 4:30 p.m.

All the Single Ladies

In September the Book Group will be reading All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation by Rebecca Traister. In 2010, award-winning journalist Rebecca Traister started a book that she thought would be about the twenty-first-century phenomenon of the American single woman. Over the course of her research, Traister made a startling discovery: historically, when women have had options beyond early heterosexual marriage, their resulting independence has provoked massive social change. Unmarried women were crucial to the abolition, suffrage, temperance, and labor movements; they created settlement houses and secondary education for women. Today, only 20% of Americans are wed by age 29, compared to nearly 60% in 1960. The Population Reference Bureau calls it a "dramatic reversal." Traister sets out to examine how this generation of independent women is changing the world.

New members welcome.
Copies of the book are available at the Main Circulation Desk.
