As Pride month wraps up, don’t forget to join us for the last couple of events we have going on here at the library!
June 27th at 7pm in the Robbins Library Conference Room QBG will be discussing Cottonmouths by Kelly J. Ford. “College was supposed to be an escape for Emily Skinner. But after failing out of school, she’s left with no choice but to return to her small hometown in the Ozarks, a place run on gossip and good Christian values. Emily’s former best friend—and childhood crush—Jody Monroe is back with a baby. Emily can’t resist the opportunity to reconnect… When Emily stumbles upon a meth lab on Jody’s property, she realizes just how far they’ve both fallen. Emily will learn just how far Jody is willing to go to save her own skin—and how much Emily herself has risked for the love of someone who may never truly love her back.” We’re picking our next batch of books at this meeting, so it’s a good one to attend!
On June 28th at 7pm in the Robbins Library Community Room come hear local author Sue Katz speak on what it was like being queer in the Boston area during her lifetime & how things have evolved and changed. Sue Katz’s business card identifies her as a “Wordsmith & Rebel.” She is an author, an activist, and an Arlingtonian. As a pioneer in Boston’s women’s liberation and LGBTQ movements, she’s got some wild stories to tell. Her most recent work includes writing and speaking about the particular needs of LGBTQ elders – the generations born into a life of closets and discrimination. Her books Lillian’s Last Affair and Lillian in Love explore these issues. Sue Katz’s fiction and journalism have been published on the three continents where she has lived and worked.
