Community Book Discussion: There Will Be No Miracles Here

Details

The Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center welcomes the community to participate in its January 2020 Community Book Discussion, featuring There Will Be No Miracles Here, a memoir by Casey Gerald. Out Magazine calls it “A vital missive to these cracked-up times . . . Gerald nimbly avoids the twin perils of self-pity and romanticism, with writing that is muscular and direct.” There Will Be No Miracles Here has the arc of a classic rags-to-riches tale, but it stands the American Dream narrative on its head. If to live as we are is destroying us, it asks, what would it mean to truly live? Intense, incantatory, shot through with sly humor and quiet fury, There Will Be No Miracles Here inspires us to question–even shatter–and reimagine our most cherished myths.

Community Book Discussions at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center are sponsored by Let's Play Books and by Lehigh University's Humanities Center and Southside Initiative.

This is a sober-social event. No alcohol will be served.
