Queery: Radical Queer Book Club ft. Inferno by Eileen Myles moderated by Elysia Smith

You are invited to join Queery, a radical queer book club! This month, Elysia, owner of Irvington Vinyl & Books will be moderating a discussion on Inferno (A Poet’s Novel) by Eileen Myles.

We’ll use fiction, non-fiction, and poetry as a lens to examine queer theory, social structures, identity, and privilege. 

We won’t be sticking exclusively to the traditional queer canon, though. We hope to discuss texts that are not traditionally viewed as LGBTQ in addition to pieces that we see as foundations of modern inclusive pedagogy. We will be reading one book a month with rotating discussion leaders. 

The folks behind Queery aim for this meet-up to be a crucible of conversation, debate, and activation. 

This goes without saying, but we will anyway. Queery is holistically welcoming as long as you are — TERF, xenophobic, etc., this isn’t for you.
