The Red PartsJoin us for a librarian-led discussion about 'The Red Parts' by Maggie Nelson.

“Late in 2004, Maggie Nelson was looking forward to the publication of her book Jane: A Murder, a narrative in verse about the life and death of her aunt, who had been murdered years before. The case remained unsolved. Then, one November afternoon, Nelson received a call from her mother, who announced that the case had been reopened; a new suspect would be arrested and tried on the basis of a DNA match.Over the months that followed, Nelson found herself attending the trial with her mother and reflecting anew on the aura of dread and fear that derived not only from the terrible facts of her aunt's murder but also from her own complicated journey through sisterhood, daughterhood, and girlhood. The Red Parts is a memoir, an account of a trial, and a provocative essay that scrupulously explores the nature of grief, justice, and empathy.” – Publisher

Registration begins December 21.
