Read: Nina Here Nor There

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for another great discussion last night! In June, we are venturing back into nonfiction with a biography called Nina Here Nor There by Nick Krieger. Here is a brief deiscription:

Ambitious, sporty, feminine “capital-L lesbians” had been Nina Krieger’s type, for friends that is. She hadn’t dated in seven years, a period of non-stop traveling—searching for what, or avoiding what, she didn’t know. When she lands in San Francisco’s Castro neighborhood, her roommates introduce her to a whole new world, full of people who identify as queer, who modify their bodies and blur the line between woman and man, who defy everything Nina thought she knew about gender and identity. Despite herself, Nina is drawn to the people she once considered freaks, and before long, she is forging a path that is neither man nor woman, here nor there. This candid and humorous memoir of gender awakening brings readers into the world of the next generation of transgender warriors and tells a classic tale of first love and self-discovery.

 

 

Just to reiterate a few details: Lez Read is a Politics and Prose book group. We meet the second Wednesday of each month at 7:30 at Politics and Prose Bookstore. Because this is a P&P book group, we can only meet on Wednesday nights. I apologize if this inconvenient for some of you. Although we do post the group here on on Meetup.com, this is not a meetup group per se, it is book group sponsored by Politics and Prose bookstore.  Some of you have requested that this group be a more social group.  I leave that to you to organize amongst yourselves, as that is not the purpose of the group or the reason we post on meetup.  Please email me directly with questions or comments: [masked]

    Great to hear a lot of different perspectives on what turns out to be a pretty complex and ultimately sympathetic (for me) book. We could have talked all night . . . .
