Words Matter: Queer Reads with SOJOURN

Announcing a new group program: Queer Reads from SOJOURN!

Each month, we’ll be reading and discussing a queer Jewish work of fiction, nonfiction, or memoir. We’ll meet over Zoom to discuss the readings and the importance of queer Jewish stories.

Our first book will be Traveling the Two Lane by Marilyn Berman (who happens to be SOJOURN’s first Executive Director!).  Her poignant memoir tells parallel stories of her solo road trip across North America and a lifetime navigating as a closeted and conflicted lesbian in a world with changing opinions about same-sex love.

You can register by filling out this form. By registering, you can request a FREE copy of Traveling the Two Lane ahead of our first discussion. You can also click here to find our list of independent bookstores throughout the South for your future Words Matter - and other - book purchases.

We’re excited to read with you!
