Anissa Gray’s THE CARE AND FEEDING OF RAVENOUSLY HUNGRY GIRLS - Relationships Between Women

We're thrilled to discuss Anissa Gray's new novel, The Care and Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls. Told in the alternating perspectives of the Butler sisters, this novel is timely, compelling, and, at times, heartbreaking.

We offer pairings and recommendations for the ways that teachers can use this book in their classrooms.

After you listen, join us on social media throughout October to participate in our book club discussions. We'd love to know what you think!
