July - Finding your identity amidst family tragedy and humor


AACRAO's LGBTQIA Caucus will host July's book club. This month, they chose a short graphic novel that explores the process of finding one's identity while entwined with family intricacies.

Graphic Novel

"Distant and exacting, Bruce Bechdel was an English teacher and director of the town funeral home, which Alison and her family referred to as the Fun Home. It was not until college that Alison, who had recently come out as a lesbian, discovered that her father was also gay. A few weeks after this revelation, he was dead, leaving a legacy of mystery for his daughter to resolve."

AACRAO's LGBTQIA Caucus will host a virtual discussion on the read on July 28, 1:00 p.m. (ET). Reserve your spot today.
