Little Blue Encyclopedia (for Vivian)Join us for a librarian-led discussion about ‘Little Blue Encyclopedia (for Vivian)’ by Hazel Jane Plante.

“The playful and poignant novel Little Blue Encyclopedia (for Vivian) sifts through a queer trans woman's unrequited love for her straight trans friend who died. A queer love letter steeped in desire, grief, and delight, the story is interspersed with encyclopedia entries about a fictional TV show set on an isolated island. The experimental form functions at once as a manual for how pop culture can help soothe and mend us and as an exploration of oft-overlooked sources of pleasure, including karaoke, birding, and butt toys.” – Publisher

Registration begins March 25.

Register at McGill branch or call 604-299-8955. Once registered, bring your library card to pick up your copy of the book from the McGill branch info desk.
