Join us on Wednesday, August 7th for our next Cactus Boon Club. Milwaukee4Palestine will lead the discussion on The Trinity of Fundamentals by Wisam Rafeedie. This story “follows the story of 22-year-old Kan’an during his nine years of hiding from the occupation between 1982 and 1991. Driven by an unshakable commitment to the Palestinian cause, Kan’an takes the reader through his compelling journey filled with sacrifice and struggle, love and pain, isolation and liberation…Although the novel is set in the past, it holds many lessons that resonate with our current political moment, mobilizing us into collective action”.

Recommended bookseller: Milwaukee Liberation Center

Cactus Book Club meets on the first Wednesday of the month from 5:30-7:30 at Cactus Club (in the back venue room or outside patio, weather permitting). Each month a different business, community organization, collective, or artist chooses the book and leads the discussion. We read fiction and non-fiction, with a focus on works by women, LGBTQ+, POC, and/or otherwise under-published groups. You don’t have to finish reading the book to attend. 18+. All book club meetings are free. No registration required. CBC is part of our ongoing Cactus+ programming
