While we may not be able to meet in person right now, book clubs are still a great way to connect socially and stay engaged! QueerKPL will be hosting this book club as part of our QueerKPL Media Club.
We will be discussing Jonny Appleseed by Joshua Whitehead. This title is also available as an e-audiobook and ebook from Download Library.
reserve and trying to find ways to live and love in the big city, Jonny
Appleseed, a young Two-Spirit/Indigiqueer, becomes a cybersex worker who
fetishizes himself in order to make a living. Jonny's world is a series of
breakages, appendages, and linkages - and as he goes through the motions of
preparing to return home for his step-father's funeral, he learns how to put
together the pieces of his life. Jonny Appleseed is a unique, shattering vision
of Indigenous life, full of grit, glitter, and dreams.
