CANCELLED – Queer Book Group (QBG) Reads… On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous

June 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

This month QBG reads the novel On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong.

On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous is a letter from a son to a mother who cannot read. Written when the speaker, Little Dog, is in his late twenties, the letter unearths a family’s history that began before he was born — a history whose epicenter is rooted in Vietnam — and serves as a doorway into parts of his life his mother has never known, all of it leading to an unforgettable revelation. At once a witness to the fraught yet undeniable love between a single mother and her son, it is also a brutally honest exploration of race, class, and masculinity.”

Copies of the book are available at the Robbins Library Circulation Desk to pick up – just ask a staff member for this month’s QBG book! 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!
