Announcing the AFP Houston Member Book Club!

Please join us for the inaugural meeting of the AFP Houston professional development Book Club on Friday, July 12 at 9:00 AM at Sunday Press (3315 Ella Blvd, Houston 77018). We will be reading and discussing Madam C. J. Walker's Gospel of Giving: Black Women's Philanthropy during Jim Crow (by Tyrone McKinley Freeman) We hope to see you there!

Our goal with the Book Club is to give our AFP Houston members an opportunity to connect and share diverse perspectives, while providing gentle accountability for reading and thinking more deeply about topics relevant to our field (development, philanthropy, social justice, management, etc.). The group is open and free for members!

If you plan to attend this meeting, please RSVP so we have an idea of who is joining us! 

We will be reading one book per quarter for the upcoming year, so please also mark your calendars for the future meetings (books to be announced soon): Sept 13, Jan 10, and April 11.  Also, please join our Goodreads group here.

Special thanks to our planning committee (Jill Assir, Lena Khattab, Sarat Pratapchandran, and Abby Trahan) for organizing this new initiative to benefit our members!
