[45] Carley Moore, author of The Not Wives


“A lot of people say Occupy was a failure but I don’t think that at all. I think it helped us have the kinds of economic conversations we’re having.” – Carley Moore

Renee Powers founded Feminist Book Club in 2018 to provide a space for intersectional feminists to learn, grow, and connect. When not reading or running the biz, you can find her drinking coffee and trying unsuccessfully to teach her retired racing greyhound how to fetch. Favorite genres: feminist thrillers, contemporary literary fiction, short stories, and anything that might be described as "irreverent"
