Transgender History: ‘Even In Another Time’ In-Person Book Club

By Mulberry Street Branch NYPL

Transgender History: ‘Even In Another Time’ In-Person Book Club Mulberry Street Branch NYPL, SoHo Events

The history of LGBT+ literature is extensive, but if you’re anything like us, getting to all those classics can sometimes be a challenge.

That’s why staff from the Mulberry Street Library invite you to discuss an LGBT+ themed book either published in or written about a historical period!

This month, we’ll discuss Transgender History: the Roots of Today’s Revolution by Susan Stryker, which is available as a physical book, e-book, or e-audiobook with your Library card.

“A timely second edition of the classic text on transgender history, with a new introduction and updated material throughout Covering American transgender history from the mid-twentieth century to today, Transgender History takes a chronological approach to the subject of transgender history, with each chapter covering major movements, writings, and events. Chapters cover the transsexual and transvestite communities in the years following World War II; trans radicalism and social change, which spanned from 1966 with the publication of The Transsexual Phenomenon, and lasted through the early 1970s; the mid-’70s to 1990-the era of identity politics and the changes witnessed in trans circles through these years; and the gender issues witnessed through the ’90s and ’00s. Transgender History includes informative sidebars highlighting quotes from major texts and speeches in transgender history and brief biographies of key players, plus excerpts from transgender memoirs and discussion of treatments of transgenderism in popular culture.”

‘Even In Another Time’ borrows its title from Anne Carson’s translation of a Sappho fragment: “someone will remember us / I say / even in another time.”

This event will take place in-person in the Mulberry Street Library Community Room on Lower Level 2. Please note that there is no restroom at this branch. Attendance is limited to the first 20 patrons. Registration is recommended but not required
