Young United Book Club was launched at Holland House Beach Hotel on Sunday.
MARIGOT–Seven young women from all walks of life and described as “motivated and ready to realise projects in the community” came together on Sunday to create the Young United Women Book Club, an addition to the already established United Women Book Club.
The young group comprises Vaninicia Walters, Ravina Claudius, Carleen Griffith, Fabienne Chance, Shanice Powell, Jennifer Cocks and Latifa Parotte.
“Seeing that the purpose of the United Women Book Club is to unite and bring together women who share and bond over the same mutual interest, the demand to have a young club soon came about,” book club founder Danielle Chance-Glasgow explained.
“Reading is universal, no matter what gender, age, or social setting. When we read, our minds open, but there are also today a variety of genres directed specifically to young people. It is through the dynamism and innovative minds of this generation that literature has been able to take on a whole new meaning.
“This is like a dream come true for me. When I started the book club, I had a vision in mind that the book club will go beyond simple reading and interpretation. This is also a community, a sphere of empowerment and of positive impact.”
