Pride Book Discussion Group - The Chosen & The Beautiful

Pride Book Discussion Group - The Chosen & The Beautiful

The Pride Book Discussion Group reads and discusses books centered around LGBTQ themes each month of the summer. Any LGBTQ-identifying person or ally who would like to interrogate the representation of queerness in various types of literature is welcome. 

Join us on Tuesday, August 23, 2022, from 6:30 to 7:30 pm in person (masks required) in the Small Programming Room on the lower level of the Main Branch to discuss The Chosen and the Beautiful by Nghi Vo. The Chosen and the Beautiful is a modern rewriting of The Great Gatsby, featuring Jordan Baker, friend to Daisy Fay, and girlfriend to Nick Carroway. With a touch of magic, Jordan tells the classic story from her own eyes--queer, adopted, and Vietnamese American--as she finds her place in it.

Please email Stephanie at stephanie.lodico@hoboken.bccls.org to join the discussion, or if you have any questions about this event. Print copies of the book will be available for pickup once you RSVP to the event.
