The Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center presents the September discussion of the center's Queer Memoir Reading Group, featuring Wow, No Thank You. by Samantha Irby, winner of 2021 Lambda Literary Award for Bisexual Nonfiction.
This collection of essays draws on the raw, hilarious particulars of Irby's new life. She has left her job as a receptionist at a veterinary clinic, has published successful books and has been friendzoned by Hollywood, left Chicago, and moved into a house with a garden that requires repairs and know-how with her wife in a Blue town in the middle of a Red state where she now hosts book clubs and makes mason jar salads.
The Associated Press writes, "The incomparable Samantha Irby offers yet another laugh-out-loud masterpiece...The perfect read at a time when we all could use a little comic relief."
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.
