November book selection
I just love the fall season. With the fall weather comes some of my favorite things, like the leaves changing colors, leather boots and comfy sweatshirts, pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks, and my favorite—a perfect reason to cuddle up with a blanket and good book! This is why I am so excited to share Reading Women's second book.

For the month of November, we will be reading The Women Who Raised Me, by Victoria Rowell. The book is about how Victoria, the child of an unmarried Yankee blueblood mother and unknown black father, beat the odds. It is her story about how she rose out of the foster care system to attain the American Dream and about the women who inspired her along the way.

The book was chosen because it shows great examples of leading women and the impact they have on others. It also relates well to one of our philanthropies, Court Appointed Special Advocates, which helps children through the foster care system.

If you have not yet joined Reading Women online, please join us. Each week leading up to the November 13 live discussion, a question will be posted on the Reading Women site for you to answer! The live discussion taking place on November 13 starts at 8:30pm Eastern. To participate, just sign on to the Reading Women site and join the virtual discussion!

We look forward to this month's book and discussion. We hope you can participate as well!

Lauren Lewis, Delta/Illinois, is the assistant director of alumnae engagement at Kappa Alpha Theta Fraternity.
