Virtual - LGBTQ+ Book Club: Read "The Fire Never Goes Out" *For 15-25
Friday, December 17, 2021
We are so pleased to be partnering with OUT Metrowest to bring this book club for the LGBTQ+ community to our area! If you are 15-25 years old (or thereabouts), identify as LGBTQ+ and would like to chat about books that celebrate LGBTQ+ joys, and to use books as a springboard to discuss the challenges, we hope you can join us. This month's book selection is "The Fire Never Goes Out" by Noelle Stevenson. This book club will be facilitated by librarians from the LGBTQ+ community and members of OUT Metrowest.
About the book:
From Noelle Stevenson, the New York Times bestselling author-illustrator of Nimona, comes a captivating, honest illustrated memoir that finds her turning an important corner in her creative journey--and inviting readers along for the ride. In a collection of essays and personal mini-comics that span eight years of her young adult life, author-illustrator Noelle Stevenson charts the highs and lows of being a creative human in the world. Whether it's hearing the wrong name called at her art school graduation ceremony or becoming a National Book Award finalist for her debut graphic novel, Nimona, Noelle captures the little and big moments that make up a real life, with a wit, wisdom, and vulnerability that are all her own.
