Tuesday, November 11, 7 pm, Small Meeting Room, Main Library

Few coming of age stories have the impact of Rita Mae Brown's fictionalized memoir, Rubyfruit Jungle. One of the first mainstream books to openly discuss lesbianism, the novel is also a laugh out loud, and remarkably tender story of an intelligent, independent girl refusing to follow the conventional roles assigned to women. Join Greg Salustro , former Evanston Arts Commissioner, and chair of “Reeling 32”, Chicago’s LGBTQ annual film festival in our discussion of this still timely novel. Copies are available at the Readers Advisory desk on the 2nd floor; to register or reserve a copy call 847-448-8620 or register online.
