This event will take place at our Brooklyn location.Local writers Liz Prince (Tomboy: A Graphic Memoir) and Ariel Schrag (Adam) discuss gender identity and their newest works. In Tomboy, Prince chronicles her struggle to understand what it means to “be a girl.” In Schrag’s debut novel Adam, a teenage boy gets mistaken for a trans guy -- and falls for a lesbian. Join us for what should be a fascinating discussion.Facebook RSVP encouraged, but not required.
Growing up, Liz Prince wasn't a girly girl, dressing in pink tutus or playing Pretty Pretty princess like the other girls in her neighborhood. But she wasn't exactly one of the guys either, as she quickly learned when her Little League baseball coach exiled her to the outfield instead of letting her take the pitcher's mound.$14.99ISBN: 9780544142930Availability: Available from our distributor; usually Ships in 1-5 DaysPublished: Mariner Books - June 10th, 2014NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE DIRECTED BY RHYS ERNST AND STARRING NICHOLAS ALEXANDER, BOBBI SALVÖR MENUEZ, LEO SHENG, AND MARGARET QUALLEY
