Totally Graphic YA Book Club
High Schoolers! Are you short on time (or attention) but want all the coziness of a book club in a bonafide bookshop? Join us each month for Capri Suns and snacks and discussions of the graphic novel we’ll read each month.
This book club is for students in grades 9-12, and will meet the second Friday of each month.
Registration is required to participate in the Totally Graphic book club.
How to Be Ace: A Memoir of Growing UP Asexual by Rebecca Burgess
WHEN: Friday, October 14, 5 PM
WHERE: Dog-Eared Books
‘When I was in school, everyone got to a certain age where they became interested in talking about only one thing: boys, girls and sex. Me though? I was only interested in comics.’
Growing up, Rebecca assumes sex is just a scary new thing they will ‘grow into’ as they get older, but when they leave school, start working and do grow up, they start to wonder why they don’t want to have sex with other people.
In this brave, hilarious and empowering graphic memoir, we follow Rebecca as they navigate a culture obsessed with sex—from being bullied at school and trying to fit in with friends, to forcing themself into relationships and experiencing anxiety and OCD—before coming to understand and embrace their asexual identity.
Pick up a free copy (once registered) that was paid for and sponsored by a community member, or grab it from the library, and join us at Dog·Eared Books at 5 PM on Friday, October 14, to discuss!
