Community Book Discussion: Butterfly Boy

Details

The Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center invites the community to participate in its October 2019 Community Book Discussion featuring Butterfly Boy: Memoirs of a Chicano Mariposa by Rigoberto Gonzàlez. Out Magazine says “González’s elegant, wrenching, and poetic memoir recounts his childhood among poor Mexican farmworkers, losing his mother at twelve, whippings for youthful cross-dressing, being abandoned by his father, and coming out and finding peace with his identity amid a culture where machismo is prized.”

Free copies of the book are available for the first ten to sign up, by emailing kathleen@bradburysullivancenter.org.

Community Book Discussions are sponsored by Lehigh University's Humanities Center and Southside Initiative and Let's Play Books.
