TMAC (Transmasculine Alliance of Chicago) partners with EPL for a monthly book club.

This month, the TMAC Book Club will be reading "Thirty Names of Night" by Zeyn Joukhadar.  

Five years after a suspicious fire killed his ornithologist mother, a closeted Syrian American trans boy sheds his birth name and searches for a new one. He has been unable to paint since his mother's ghost has begun to visit him each evening. As his grandmother's sole caretaker, he spends his days cooped up in their apartment, avoiding his neighborhood masjid, his estranged sister, and even his best friend (who also happens to be his longtime crush). The only time he feels truly free is when he slips out at night to paint murals on buildings in the once-thriving Manhattan neighborhood known as Little Syria.

Winner of the ALA Stonewall Book Award—Barbara Gittings Literature Award
Named Best Book of the Year by Bustle
Named Most Anticipated Book of the Year by The Millions, Electric Literature, and HuffPost

At this time, this book club is hosted with TMAC (Transmasculine Alliance of Chicago) and only open to afab (assigned female at birth) trans, GNC, non-binary, or questioning adults (18+) interested in reading trans authors.  

For further information on this new club, or if you have ideas about how the library can better serve the Evanston TGNC community at large, please email M. Halka (mhalka@cityofevanston.org).  

Additionally, the library is revitalizing its LGBT+ book group open to all patrons.  Please contact Kellye Fleming kfleming@cityofevanston for more information about this general book club.
