Queer Book Group (QBG)/Social Reads… Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic

October 28, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

This month QBG reads the graphic novel Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel. “In this graphic memoir, Alison Bechdel charts her fraught relationship with her late father. Distant and exacting, Bruce Bechdel was an English teacher and director of the town funeral home, which Alison and her family referred to as the Fun Home. It was not until college that Alison, who had recently come out as a lesbian, discovered that her father was also gay. A few weeks after this revelation, he was dead, leaving a legacy of mystery for his daughter to resolve.” Copies of the book are available instantly on Hoopla with your library card!  We’ll be meeting via Zoom – email Rob at and you will be sent the Zoom meeting link close to the time of the meeting.

Queer Book Group / Social reads great LGBTQ-themed books, both fiction and non-fiction, and hosts LGBTQ-themed social events. New members are welcome!  Come make some new friends & expand your community!
