When: Thu., Feb. 24, 6-7:30 p.m.
Please join us for a talk by history professor and author Dr. Gregory Samantha Rosenthal on their book Living Queer History: Remembrance and Belonging in a Southern City, which explores an LGBTQ community in Roanoke, Virginia. Interweaving historical analysis, theory, and memoir, Rosenthal tells the story of their own journey—coming out and transitioning as a transgender woman—while working on a community-based history project documenting a multigenerational southern LGBTQ community. A book signing will follow the talk. This in-person event will also be livestreamed on our Facebook and YouTube pages. Visit www.facebook.com/LibraryofVA or www.youtube.com/user/LibraryofVA at the time of the event.
