Queer Book Club: The Argonauts

Monday, March 18, 2019, 7 p.m.

Queer Book Club is a small but enthusiastic community that meets monthly to discuss queer-themed books spanning numerous genres. This month, we will be reading The Argonauts by Maggie Nelson.

A genre-bending memoir, a work of ‘autotheory’ offering fresh, fierce, and timely thinking about desire, identity, and the limitations and possibilities of love and language. At its center is a romance: the story of the author’s relationship with the artist Harry Dodge. This story, which includes Nelson’s account of falling in love with Dodge, who is fluidly gendered, as well as her journey to and through a pregnancy, offers a firsthand account of the complexities and joys of (queer) family-making.
