Program Description

Program Details


Come hear from author Diana Goetsch about her book This Body I Wore. A poet and essayist, Goetsch will present her acclaimed memoir as part of a Red State Library Tour to support libraries and minorities being targeted by book bans.

This Body I Wore, hailed as “achingly beautiful” by The New York Times Book Review, chronicles the budding trans communities of the late 20th century and the light it sheds on today’s struggle for trans equality.

The reading and talk will be followed by Q&A discussion and book signing.
