Library Services’ latest book displays are dedicated to transgender lives.
You can find physical displays on Level 5 of the Northampton Square Library; outside PC lab 1002 at the Business Library; and in the Law Library there are two displays, one behind the help desk, the other one beside the computer lab. You are free to browse the shelves and borrow any book you want.
Check out our recommendations below. If a title intrigues you, but when you come to browse our shelves it’s not available, don’t worry – you can place a request on the title via CityLibrary Search.
Our first suggestion is called “Super Late Bloomer” by Julia Kaye. When the author started her transition in 2016, she started using her webcomic as a diary, documenting her struggles and her victories.
If you want to read about collective action and human rights, we highly recommend “Organizing for transgender rights: collective action, group development, and the rise of a new social movement“.
There are also plenty of novels in our collection: “Stone butch blues: a novel” by Leslie Feinberg, “Paul takes the form of a mortal girl” by Andrea Lawlor and “Detransition, baby” by Torrey Peters.
