Alumni & Friends Virtual Book Club

Tuesday, October 26, 6-7p.m. EDT
Featured Book: Queer Intentions:
A (Personal) Journey Through LGBTQ+ Culture

Join us as we recognize LGBTQ History Month in this fall book club series. Laura Robinson, Clark’s university librarian, will lead this October session, featuring Queer Intentions: A (Personal) Journey Through LGBTQ+ Culture by Amelia Abraham.

Queer Intentions provides the ultimate exploration of the joys and pains of being LGBTQ+ in the West at a time when queer culture has never been so mainstream. Today, the options and freedoms on offer to LGBTQ+ people living in the West are greater than ever before. But is same-sex marriage, improved media visibility and corporate endorsement all it’s cracked up to be? At what cost does this acceptance come? And who is getting left behind, particularly in parts of the world where LGBTQ+ rights aren’t so advanced? Combining intrepid journalism with her own personal experience, Amelia Abraham searches for the answers to these urgent challenges, as well as the broader question of what it means to be queer.

Joining the Alumni & Friends Book Club is easy and participation can be at your own pace:
