7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

Join us for an evening with Hazel Jane Plante, whose debut 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 islolated island. It reveals with glorious detail and emotional nuance the woman the narrator loved, why she loved her, and the depths of hat she has lost. 

Hazel is a queer trans librarian, cat photographer, and writer. In a previous life, she co-founded a micro-press, co-edited a little literary journal, co-hosted a podcast, and released lo-fi albums under the nane Sparse.
