Feminism... and faith?
These two words seem to be incompatible for many Latter-day Saints. However, in a new book published by Deseret Book, A Place to Belong, explores the interconnectedness between the two ideas.
This month, we invite you to join the LDS Living Book Club as we read a book that celebrates the diversity among women in our faith and how they reconcile what it means to be a feminist and a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Please join us on Wednesday, February 19th at 6 p.m. MST at the Deseret Book Flagship store in downtown Salt Lake City for a discussion and Q&A with the editors of A Place to Belong, Hollie Rhees Fluhman and Camille Fronk Olson. A book signing will also follow the event.
This event will also be broadcast live on LDS Living Book Club’s Instagram.

In our complex world, it's easy for modern Latter-day Saint women to feel they don't fit the mold, especially in a culture that often focuses on traditional values and picture-perfect families. A Place to Belong is filled with distinctive stories written by thirty-three modern women of faith who show from their own lives that there's more than one way to be a believing and contributing woman in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
This collection celebrates the diverse lives that women lead and how they navigate their twin commitments to women's issues and to their faith. For some people, faith and feminism may seem incompatible, yet A Place to Belong illustrates how they can actually complement each other.
