The WIEG Book Club is back in full swing! This year we will be exploring books by renowned author and gifted storyteller Brené Brown. The book we will be discussing for this event is The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are


The book club is run by the Women in Engineering and Geoscience Division executive committee. Books are selected based on participant interest and relevance to women in engineering and geoscience. Sessions are hosted via teleconference so that members across the province can discuss and connect on the book together.


When our embarrassments and fears lie, we often listen to them anyway. They thwart our gratitude, acceptance, and compassion our goodness. They insist, “I am not worthy.” But we are worthy—of self-discovery, personal growth, and boundless love. With Brené Brown’s game-changing New York Times bestseller The Gifts of Imperfection which has sold more than 2 million copies in more than 30 different languages, and Forbes recently named one of the "Five Books That Will Actually Change Your Outlook On Life" we find courage to overcome paralyzing fear and self-consciousness, strengthening our connection to the world.


A digitial or hardcopy of this book can be purchased through Amazon. Alternatively, there may be limited copies of the book at your local library or bookstore. Please contact your local library branch for availability.
