Brunswick High School Book Club
This is it, the last one, the final title in the Let’s Talk Graphic series up for discussion on Thursday April 28, 2:15 – 3:15 pm at Brunswick High School.
As the subtitle states, Tomboy is an autobiographical comic recounting Liz Prince’s childhood aversion to anything considered “girly”. And no, she is not a lesbian and no, she is not transgendered. Nor is she allergic to the color pink (though it definitely isn’t her favorite color.) What makes a girl a girl? Why is a girl who doesn’t like to wear dresses called a tomboy?
These questions and society’s assumptions are part of the conversation Prince has with the reader (and herself).
Join the conversation and pick up or request a copy of Tomboy today.
The Let’s Talk Graphic series, sponsored by the Maine Humanities Council, is a joint pilot project involving the Brunswick High School Library and Curtis Memorial Library during the 2015 -16 school year.
