Lit with Liberate, our monthly LGBT-themed reading group, will meet in September at the Guille-Allès library.
We’ll be discussing Little Fish by Casey Plett.
In this extraordinary debut novel, Wendy Reimer is a thirty-year-old trans woman who comes across evidence that her late grandfather—a devout Mennonite farmer—might have been transgender himself. At first she dismisses this revelation, having other problems at hand, but as she and her friends struggle to cope with the challenges of their increasingly volatile lives—from alcoholism, to sex work, to suicide—Wendy is drawn to the lost pieces of her grandfather’s life, becoming determined to unravel the mystery of his truth. Alternately warm-hearted and dark-spirited, desperate and mirthful, Little Fish explores the winter of discontent in the life of one transgender woman as her past and future become irrevocably entwined.
This is a free reading group that is 18+ and open to all. For more info email firstname.lastname@example.org 🙂
