Recent & Upcoming Events

Sichere Wiesn Action – September 15

Sichere Wiesen – a safer Octoberfest for girls and women!

Sichere Wiesen offers a safe haven at Octoberfest for girls and women from around the world.  Please help us to support it!
When: Friday, September 15th near Hauptbahnhof

Oktoberfest time is rolling around soon, and that means it’s time for the Sichere Wiesn action. Our job is to pass out flyers to local hotels and hostels just in time for Oktoberfest, so that female guests know about it. As usual, we’ll split up into small groups with Sichere Wiesn staff and distribute flyers to hotels in the city center.

For those of you who are new to AAUPW — our club supports this valuable non-profit organization which provides a security point at the Oktoberfest grounds for women and girls who need help.  Please sign up and volunteer to help. It just takes a little more than an hour.

An Evite Reminder will be sent out closer to the date

My Grandmother asked me . . . , The History of Bees

Book Club – Fall 2017

The next book club meeting will be Wednesday, September 13th at 7pm.  We will be discussing the following  books this fall.

Our first book for the September meeting:  My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry  is a charming, warmhearted novel from the author of the New York Times bestseller A Man Called Ove. It is a story about a seven year old girl and her seventy-seven year old grandmother, life and death and the right to be different.

Our second book: The History of Bees, A Novel by Maja Lunde.  In the spirit of Station Eleven and The History of Bees book cover
Never Let Me Go, this dazzling and ambitious literary debut follows three generations of beekeepers from the past, present, and future, weaving a spellbinding story of their relationship to the bees—and to their children and one another—against the backdrop of an urgent, global crisis.   England, 1852. William is a biologist and seed merchant, who sets out to build a new type of beehive—one that will give both him and his children honor and fame.   United States, 2007. George is a beekeeper fighting an uphill battle against modern farming, but hopes that his son can be their salvation…

Not yet scheduled: Egalia’s Daughters: A Satire of the Sexes by Gerd Brantenberg.  An interesting thought-provoking satire on gender roles and in particular the fortunes of one “masculinist” boy who tries to fight against the oppression of his gender. It’s an upside-down society, in which men are repressed and taken advantage of, and women have all the power.  

The Founding Gardeners: How the Revolutionary Generation created an American Eden by Andrea Wulf .
The follow up to the award-winning and critically acclaimed history of British gardening, this is the story of how George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and James Madison’s passion for nature, plants, agriculture and gardens shaped the birth of America. The Founding Gardeners offers a fascinating look at the revolutionary generation from the unique and intimate perspective of their lives as gardeners, plantsmen and farmers.
