Community Book Discussion: The Fact of a Body

May 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The LGBT Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center invites participation in our January Community Book Discussion featuring The Fact of a Body by Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich. The Fact of a Body is a Lambda Literary Award winner, which Vogue calls “A True Crime Masterpiece” and the text is an intellectual and emotional thriller that is also a different kind of murder mystery, THE FACT OF A BODY is a book not only about how the story of one crime was constructed — but about how we grapple with our own personal histories. Along the way it tackles questions about the nature of forgiveness, and if a single narrative can ever really contain something as definitive as the truth. This groundbreaking, heart-stopping work, ten years in the making, shows how the law is more personal than we would like to believe — and the truth more complicated, and powerful, than we could ever imagine. Library Journal says “the writing is superb and gripping…a moving must-have.”

Community Book Discussions at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center are facilitated by Mary Foltz, Associate Professor of English at Lehigh University.

Free copies of the book are available for the first ten to sign up. Email kathleen@bradburysullivancenter.org to sign up.

This program is sponsored by Lehigh University’s Humanities Center, Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program, Pride Center, and Mellon Digital Humanities Initiative, as well as the LGBT Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center.
