Welcome to our book group

If you enjoy reading about Louisiana politics and the invaluable contributions women have made over the past decades, this book group is for you! Professor Sally J. Kenney, executive director of the Newcomb College Institute at Tulane University, founded the Louisiana Women and Politics book group in the spring of 2010. The group meets every four to six weeks to discuss books on women and Louisiana politics aimed at a general audience. We welcome all men and women, students, faculty, and staff, alumnae, and community members. Books will be available at the Tulane bookstore for purchase or the Nadine Vorhoff library in the Caroline Richardson Building. There will be no pop quizzes, so please feel free to drop in even if you haven’t read or finished the book. This group is very flexible and welcomes voracious readers and Louisiana politics enthusiasts. We look forward to meeting you and reading your posts here on this blog. If you have any questions, please drop me a line at vorhoff@tulane.edu and address it to Bea Calvert, Women’s Studies Librarian.

    Hi Bea,

    I am writing to inquire about the Newcomb College Institute’s book group. I see that the group met earlier this spring, and I’d like to know if there is a group this semester and if I may join? I am a recent graduate from the University of Mississippi where I minored in gender studies. I was very involved with the program at Ole Miss and I’m looking for a similar community in New Orleans in which I can take part. I am not a student, so I understand if my participation may not be possible. However, I would appreciate any information or guidance. Thank you,

    Rebekah Mills

      Hi Rebekah,
      I hope you can make it to our event on Nov. 9th in the Nadine Vorhoff Library at 7 pm. Gloria Feldt will be reading from her book and discussing her ideas about women and power.
      Thanks for your interest,
