    Queer Memoir Reading Group: Fairest

    The Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center presents the December discussion of the center's Queer Memoir Reading Group, featuring Fairest by trans writer Meredith Talusan, finalist for the 2021 Lambda Literary Award for Transgender Nonfiction and one of O magazine's Best LGBTQ Books 2020.

    Fairest is a memoir about a precocious boy with albinism, a sun child from a rural Philippine village, who would grow up to become a woman in America. Talusan realized she did not want to be confined to a prescribed role as a man, and transitioned to become a woman, despite the risk of losing a man she deeply loved. Throughout her journey, Talusan shares poignant and powerful episodes of desirability and love that will remind readers of works such as Call Me By Your Name and Giovanni's Room.

    The Boston Globe writes, "By painting her life in such exquisite detail, Talusan breathes new life into the well-worn body of the transgender life story, showing the reader deep wells of complexity where, in a less truthful or less talented writer's hands, oversimplification and cliché might reign."

    Limited free copies of the book are available -- request a copy with your RSVP. If you don't need a free copy, you can buy the book here -- and 10% of your purchase supports free arts programs at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center.

    The discussion is facilitated by Mary Foltz and is sponsored by Lehigh University's Southside Initiative and Humanities Center. This program is supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.

    Queer Poetry Reading Group: Hull


    The Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center presents the December discussion of the center's Queer Poetry Reading Group, featuring Hull by writer Xandria Phillips. Hull is the winner of the Judith A. Markowitz Award and the 2020 Lambda Literary Award in Transgender Poetry.

    In this debut collection, Hull explores emotional impacts of colonialism and racism on the Black queer body and the present-day emotional impacts of enslavement in urban, rural, and international settings. Hull is lyrical, layered, history-ridden, experimental, textured, adorned, ecstatic, and emotionally investigative.

    Foreword writes, "In the tradition of Natasha Trethewey and Danez Smith, Phillips sees a through line from slavery to racism past and present. HULL is their bold indictment of prejudice."

    Limited free copies of the book are available -- request a copy with your RSVP. If you don't need a free copy, books can be purchased at this link -- and 10% of your purchase supports free arts programs at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center. The book is available in print or e-book formats.

    The discussion is facilitated by Mary Foltz and is sponsored by Lehigh University's Southside Initiative and Humanities Center. This program is supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.
