Sarah Prager (Rainbow Revolutionaries) Author Talk (Virtual)

Groton Public Library, Bank Square Books and Savoy Bookshop & Café present a virtual author event with Sarah Prager, author of Rainbow Revolutionaries. Representatives from the Library's Queer Lit book club will be moderating this event.  

Rainbow Revolutionaries and Queer, There, and Everywhere are available for checkout at the Groton Public Library or purchase at Bank Square Books and Savoy Bookshop & Café. This event is free and open to the public, but you will need to register to join the Crowdcast Stream. Registration is available here

Programming may be affected or cancelled due to COVID-19.

About the Book

Take a journey through the lives of fifty revolutionary queer figures who made history in this groundbreaking illustrated biography collection from the author of Queer, There, and Everywhere. Did you ever wonder who invented the computer? Or who advised Martin Luther King Jr. on his nonviolent activism? Author Sarah Prager and illustrator Sarah Papworth bring to life the vibrant histories of fifty pioneering LGBTQ+ people our history books forgot to mention. Delve into the lives of Wen of Han, a Chinese emperor who loved his boyfriend as much as his people; Martine Rothblatt, a trans woman who’s helping engineer the robots of tomorrow, and so many more! From athletes (Billie Jean King) to doctors (Magnus Hirschfeld) and activists (Marsha P. Johnson) to painters (Frida Kahlo), LGBTQ+ people have made their mark on every century of human existence. This book is a celebration of the many ways these hidden heroes have made a difference and will inspire young readers to make a difference, too.

About the Author

Sarah Prager is a writer, activist, and speaker on LGBTQ+ history. Her widely praised first book on the subject, Queer, There, and Everywhere: 23 People Who Changed the World, received numerous accolades, including three starred reviews and being named a Best Book for Teens by the New York Public Library and Chicago Public Library. Her second book, Rainbow Revolutionaries: 50 LGBTQ+ People Who Made History, is for ages 8–12. Prager's writing has appeared in The Atlantic, HuffPost, and many other publications. She has presented on this topic to over 130 groups across five countries, including the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City. Prager also created Quist, a free mobile app for learning LGBTQ+ history, in 2013 and was invited to the White House to contribute on LGBTQ+ tech issues in 2014. Prager lives with her wife and their children in Massachusetts.

Queer Lit: Author Event! Kings, Queens, and In-Betweens (virtual)

Join us for a teen book club that celebrates the LGBTQIA+ community! Teens in grades 6-12 are welcome to join the conversation, as we read books by and about queer people. During this month's meeting, author Tanya Boteju will be joining us to discuss her book, Kings, Queens, and In-Betweens. Copies of the book will be provided on a first come, first serve basis.  This program is hosted in partnership with OutCT of New London and Bank Square Books in Mystic.

Zoom meeting information will be emailed directly to you prior to the meeting. The Library is taking security measures to make this the best experience possible. Programming may be affected or cancelled due to COVID-19.

Book Description: Perpetually awkward Nima Kumara-Clark is bored with her insular community of Bridgeton, in love with her straight girlfriend, and trying to move past her mother’s unexpected departure. After a bewildering encounter at a local festival, Nima finds herself suddenly immersed in the drag scene on the other side of town.
Macho drag kings, magical queens, new love interests, and surprising allies propel Nima both painfully and hilariously closer to a self she never knew she could be—one that can confidently express and accept love. But she’ll have to learn to accept lost love to get there.

Suffragettes in Corselettes; The Evolution of Underwear and our 19th Amendment

History should never be boring!  This lively presentation by the Grounded Goodwife, Mother and Daughter team of Ehris Urban and Velya Jancz-Urban will explore the role of women's underwear in history.

For centuries, women have allowed themselves to be squeezed, twisted, and squished to conform to desired shapes.  The history of underwear reveals a lot about women's changing roles in society - how we perceive ourselves, and how we've viewed by others.  The 1910s saw an end to the hourglass figure with a tiny waist.  Women were finally able to breathe and move more freely.  Did the demise of tightlacing help women gain the right to vote in 1920?  Underwear matters.

Zoom meeting information will be emailed to our newsletter subscribers, registered attendees, and by request. The Library is taking security measures to make this the best experience possible. Programming may be affected or canceled due to COVID-19.

Civil War Genealogy

Professional genealogist, Bryna O'Sullican presents conducting Civil War research. You have family stories that suggest an ancestor served in the U.S. Civil War. How do you know if they’re true? And if they are, how do you find out more about their experience? This program will introduce you to the resources that can be used to study an ancestor’s experience in the Civil War, from the National Park Service’s Soldiers and Sailors Database to the widows’ pension files. By its conclusion, you’ll learn how to identify an ancestor’s unit and use that information to find out more about that ancestor’s service.

Zoom meeting information will be emailed to our newsletter subscribers, registered attendees, and by request. The Library is taking security measures to make this the best experience possible. Programming may be affected or canceled due to COVID-19.

Queer Lit: More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera (virtual)

Join us for a teen book club that celebrates the LGBTQIA+ community! Teens in grades 6-12 are welcome to join the conversation, as we read books by and about queer people. Copies of the book will be provided on a first come, first serve basis. This program is hosted in partnership with OutCT of New London and Bank Square Books in Mystic.

Zoom meeting information will be emailed directly to you prior to the meeting. The Library is taking security measures to make this the best experience possible. Programming may be affected or cancelled due to COVID-19.

Book Description: In the months after his father's suicide, it's been tough for sixteen-year-old Aaron Soto to find happiness again—but he's still gunning for it. With the support of his girlfriend Genevieve and his overworked mom, he's slowly remembering what that might feel like. But grief and the smile-shaped scar on his wrist prevent him from forgetting completely. 

When Genevieve leaves for a couple of weeks, Aaron spends all his time hanging out with this new guy, Thomas. Aaron's crew notices, and they're not exactly thrilled. But Aaron can't deny the happiness Thomas brings or how Thomas makes him feel safe from himself, despite the tensions their friendship is stirring with his girlfriend and friends. Since Aaron can't stay away from Thomas or turn off his newfound feelings for him, he considers turning to the Leteo Institute's revolutionary memory-alteration procedure to straighten himself out, even if it means forgetting who he truly is. 

Why does happiness have to be so hard?

Book Description: 

My name is Ari Helix. I have a magic sword, a cranky wizard, and a revolution to start.
 
I've been chased my whole life. As a fugitive refugee in the territory controlled by the tyrannical Mercer corporation, I've always had to hide who I am. Until I found Excalibur. Now I'm done hiding.
 
When Ari crash-lands on Old Earth and pulls a magic sword from its ancient resting place, she is revealed to be the newest reincarnation of King Arthur. Then she meets Merlin, who has aged backward over the centuries into a teenager, and together they must break the curse that keeps Arthur coming back. Their quest? Defeat the cruel, oppressive government and bring peace and equality to all humankind. No pressure.
