To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Rev Dr Kate Coleman’s book 7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership, I’m organising a Twitter book group to read through the book, one chapter per week. Kate’s organisation Next Leadership are encouraging people to run She Rises book groups and so I thought a Twitter Book Group would be a great idea!
Rather than having to all be online at the same time or anything like that, we’ll have the hashtag #SheRises7. As we read the book, we can tweet with the hashtag to share any thoughts or ideas. We can also read through the hashtag and comment on other people’s thoughts. And we’ll have a chapter hashtag to make clear which chapter we’re discussing (e.g. #int for introduction, #ch1 for chapter 1, #ch2 for chapter 2 and so on).
About ten women have told me they’re interesting in joining. Within the next couple of week’s the audiobook will be launched, so anyone who can’t manage reading it can participate using the audio book.
We’ll start with the Introduction on Monday 14th October, which gives women time to sign up, and also for those on limited budgets to have a bit of time to get the money together to buy it. If you would like to participate and can’t afford the book, let me know. If you would like to support women in participating by buying a book for a woman, let me know (especially men who are committed to supporting women’s leadership). My contact details are at the end of the blog.
This is the #sherises7 book group plan:
|21st October||Chapter 1||#ch1|
|28th October||Chapter 2||#ch2|
|4th November||Chapter 3||#ch3|
|11th November||Chapter 4||#ch4|
|18th November||Chapter 5||#ch5|
|25th November||Chapter 6||#ch6|
|2nd December||Chapter 7||#ch7|
|9th December||Overall reflections||#sherises7|
If you’d like to join the book group, feel free to just start tweeting with #SheRises7, and join in with reading the book and tweeting from 14th October. However, if you’d like to be copied into tweets about the book group, to let you know where we’re up to and stuff, please can you tweet or dm me and I’ll add you to my list.
To contact me about needing a free book or to offer to buy a book for a woman, you can email on befreeuk (at) gmail (dot) com or direct message me on Twitter @God_loves_women.
