Weinstein Author Series – Gregory Samantha Rosenthal | Living Queer History

Weinstein Author Series – Gregory Samantha Rosenthal | Living Queer History Online

Please join us for a talk by history professor and author Dr. Gregory Samantha Rosenthal on their book Living Queer History: Remembrance and Belonging in a Southern City, which explores an LGBTQ community in Roanoke, Virginia, a small city on the edge of Appalachia. Interweaving historical analysis, theory, and memoir, Rosenthal tells the story of their own journey—coming out and transitioning as a transgender woman—in the midst of working on a community-based history project that documented a multigenerational southern LGBTQ community. Based on over 40 interviews with LGBTQ elders, Living Queer History explores how queer people today think about the past and how history lives on in the present.

A book signing will follow the talk. This in-person event will also be livestreamed on our Facebook and YouTube pages. Visit https://www.facebook.com/LibraryofVA or www.youtube.com/user/LibraryofVA at the time of the event.

The Carole Weinstein Author Series supports the literary arts by bringing both new and well-known authors to the Library of Virginia through online or in-person events.
