IN PERSON

The 2SLGBTQ+ Book Club is a space to explore and discuss books by 2SLGBTQ+ authors, or books that explore 2SLGBTQ+ experiences. 

Off the reserve and trying to find ways to live and love in the big city, Jonny Appleseed, a young Two Spirit/Indiqueer person, becomes a cybersex worker who fetishizes himself in order to make a living. Self-ordained as an NDN glitter princess, Jonny has one week before he must return to the "rez"-and his former life-to attend the funeral of his stepfather. The seven days that follow are like a fevered dream: stories of love, trauma, sex, kinship, ambition, and the heartbreaking recollection of his beloved kokum (grandmother). Jonny's world is a series of breakages, appendages, and linkages-and as he goes through the motions of preparing to return home, he learns how to put together the pieces of his life. Join us and our partners from Spectrum for a discussion of this award-winning debut novel.  Jonny Appleseed by Joshua Whitehead.

Presented in partnership with SPECTRUM.

Registrants will receive an email from the programmer in advance to explain our safety protocols for in person programming. All participants will be required to self screen for COVID-19 symptoms before participating and should not attend if they are feeling unwell.
