Power in the Panels: A Graphic Novel Book Group
November 11 @ 7:00 pm
This month we’re discussing “Stone Fruit” by Lee Lai. Bron and Ray are a queer couple who enjoy their role as the fun weirdo aunties to Ray’s niece, six-year-old Nessie. Their playdates are little oases of wildness, joy, and ease in all three of their lives, which ping-pong between familial tensions and deep-seated personal stumbling blocks. As their emotional intimacy erodes, Ray and Bron isolate from each other and attempt to repair their broken family ties. Taking a leap of faith, each opens up and learns they have more in common with their siblings than they ever knew.
This group is for graphic novel enthusiasts (18+, please) who want to read and talk about independent graphic novels. 2021 marks the year of webcomics. Each month we will be reading a webcomic you can access from your phone or computer for free!
