Join us the second Thursday of the March to share your thoughts on Megan Rapinoe’s memoir “One Life” and more importantly what it has inspired you/us to do.

“In One Life, Megan Rapinoe invites readers on a remarkable journey, looking back on both her victories and her failures, and pulls back the curtain on events we know only from the headlines. After the 2011 World Cup, discouraged by how few athletes were open about their sexuality, Rapinoe decided to come out publicly as gay and use her platform to advocate for marriage equality. Recognizing the power she had to bring attention to critical issues, in 2016 she took a knee during the national anthem in solidarity with former NFL player Colin Kaepernick to protest racial injustice and police brutality—the first high-profile white athlete to do so. The backlash was immediate, but it couldn’t compare to the overwhelming support. Rapinoe became a force of change.” Amazon Review

Studies have long shown a connection between professional success and reading habits. In addition to helping us broaden our perspectives, books can literally give us somewhere to go when we must stay where we are. During this time of expanded quarantines and social distancing, #HBAMidAtlantic is committed to helping our members stay connected through virtual networking and professional development offerings like our virtual book club. This is a monthly Book Club with meetings every second Thursday of the month, this is for members only, and members can register for the books discussion they are most interested in.

Join the conversation!

• 5:30 to 5:40 Welcome/Social
• 5:40 to 6:40 Discussion about the book
• 6:40 to 6:45 Wrap up and introduction of next book
• 6:45 to 7:00 Optional Social Networking Time
