Rainbow Reading Book Club: “Her Body & Other Parties” by Carmen Maria Machado

In her electric, provocative debut, Machado blithely demolishes the arbitrary borders between psychological realism & science fiction, comedy & horror, fantasy & fabulism. While earning comparisons to Karen Russell & Kelly Link, she has a voice all her own. Machado bends genre to shape startling narratives that map the realities of women's lives & the violence visited upon their bodies. Friendly reminder: Giovanni's Room offers a 10% discount for book club members. Also, the Free Library will deliver books to your local branch as an option.
March 20 we will discuss “The Heart’s Invisible Furies”, John Boyne .

 Join our book club for commitment-phobes. Each month there’s a new genre with many titles, available for free.  Come every time or drop in when a selection intrigues you. All are LGBTQ-related & readers will be invited to discuss them in person & online beforehand.
