Lehigh Valley Reading Circle


Join YWCA of Bethlehem and Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center for a community-wide reading circle!

A community-wide conversation: Under This Beautiful Dome tells the true story of Terry Mutchler’s secret five-year relationship with Penny Severns, an Illinois State Senator. Forced to engage in an elaborate ruse to keep their relationship a secret, the two women constantly fear discovery. Denied legal access to the altar, they face even greater hardships when Penny is diagnosed with cancer and begins undergoing treatment.

This vivid, beautiful story paints an intimate portrait of a loving relationship and the vast impact gay marriage legislation has on couples and families in America today. An essential look at how our laws affect our lives. A must read for those interested in politics, equality, and the changes sweeping our nation.
