Staking Our Claim: Trans Women’s Literature in the 21st Century

Mark your calendars for October 18th! At 7:00 Barnard is having a reading and panel on trans women authors featuring Donna Ostrowsky, Imogen BinnieRed Durkin, and Ryka Aoki! The event will celebrate the release of The Collection: Short Fiction from the Transgender Vanguard (Topside Press, 2012). The four authors will come together to read their work and discuss the future of literature, the complex ways that literary trans narratives will evolve in years to come, and their own stories of characters navigating relationships, gender, family, work, race, and more.


Poet and editor Tim Trace Peterson will facilitate the discussion. You can view the BCRW event description. Also, make sure to check out "Magic in Unexpected Places," a review of The Collection by librarian Jack Radish.

The event will take place in the James Room (Barnard Hall, 4th floor).
