Reading Rainbow: LGBTQ+ Book Club

6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

This month for the Reading Rainbow: LGBTQ+ Book Club we'll be reading and discussing Detransition, Baby by Torrey Peters.  

 

Join us in-person at Old Town Library. These discussions are free and open to the public, but you must register to receive an invitation and information on getting a copy of the book.  

 

Book Description: Reese almost had what previous generations of trans women could only dream of: a life of mundane, bourgeois comforts. Then her girlfriend, Amy, detransitioned and became Ames, and everything fell apart. When Ames's boss and lover, Katrina, reveals that she's pregnant with his baby—and that she's not sure whether she wants to keep it—Ames wonders if the three of them form some kind of unconventional family—and raise the baby together?
