    Community Book Discussion: The Fact of a Body

    CBD_The_Fact_of_a_Body.pngThe LGBT Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center invites participation in our May Community Book Discussion featuring The Fact of a Body by Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich. The Fact of a Body is a Lambda Literary Award winner, which Vogue calls “A True Crime Masterpiece” and the text is an intellectual and emotional thriller that is also a different kind of murder mystery, THE FACT OF A BODY is a book not only about how the story of one crime was constructed -- but about how we grapple with our own personal histories. Along the way it tackles questions about the nature of forgiveness, and if a single narrative can ever really contain something as definitive as the truth. This groundbreaking, heart-stopping work, ten years in the making, shows how the law is more personal than we would like to believe -- and the truth more complicated, and powerful, than we could ever imagine. Library Journal says “the writing is superb and gripping…a moving must-have.”

    Community Book Discussions at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center are facilitated by Mary Foltz, Associate Professor of English at Lehigh University.

    Free copies of the book are available for the first ten to sign up. Email kathleen@bradburysullivancenter.org to sign up.

    This program is sponsored by Lehigh University's Humanities Center, Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program, Pride Center, and Mellon Digital Humanities Initiative, as well as the LGBT Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center.

    This is a sober social event at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center. No alcohol will be served.

    The LGBT Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center, in partnership with CeasefirePA, Lehigh Valley Friends of CeasefirePA, and Orange Wave PA present a book talk with Igor Volsky, author of Guns Down: How to Defeat the NRA and Build a Safer Future Without Guns

    One of Mashable's “17 books every activist should read in 2019”, Igor Volsky, a leading activist for LGBT rights and gun control, offers a radical argument for the gun control movement our country desperately needs. Actress and producer Alyssa Milano said, “Anyone who wants to help build safe American communities must read this book.”

    Igor Volsky is founder and the Director of Guns Down America. Igor has appeared on MSNBC, CNN, Fox Business, Fox News, and CNBC television, and he has been a guest on many radio shows. His work on gun violence prevention has appeared in USA Today, U.S. News and World Report and the Orlando Sentinel, among others.  In 2011, Forbes named Igor one of their top “30 under 30” in Law & Policy.

    Dessert reception to follow. Copies of Guns Down will be available for purchase at the event.
