Book Group: Trans by Juliet Jacques
Sun 5 March 2017, 10:00 – 11:00 GMT
The Fruitmarket Gallery's monthly Book Group returns, bring yourself and the book to the cafe and discuss this month's book by Juliet Jacques.
Jacques underwent sex reassignment surgery, and, for the first time her body matched the person she had been since childhood. Launching a career as a writer, she navigates the hostilities and misunderstandings of growing up in a time where the media fails to acknowledge transgender identity. Jacques interweaves the narrative with powerful explorations of major debates surrounding trans: life writing, feminism, and the before and after images illustrating so many articles and documentaries.
