A MIDWEST ADDRESS EVENT, CO-SPONSORED BY THE EVANSTON PUBLIC LIBRARY: Archie Bongiovanni and Tristan Jimerson discuss their book: A Quick & Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns.
Join us for the next Midwest Address event, this time with cartoonist and illustrator Archie Bongiovanni and writer Tristan Jimerson discussing their book A Quick and Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns.
Archie, a snarky genderqueer artist, is tired of people not understanding gender neutral pronouns. Tristan, a cisgender dude, is looking for an easy way to introduce gender neutral pronouns to his increasingly diverse workplace. The longtime best friends team up in this short and fun comic guide that explains what pronouns are, why they matter, and how to use them. They also include what to do if you make a mistake, and some tips-and-tricks for those who identify outside of the binary to keep themselves safe in this binary-centric world. A quick and easy resource for people who use they/them pronouns, and people who want to learn more!
A handy resource for all ages. A Quick And Easy Guide To They/Them Pronouns was a Publishers Weekly Favorite Reads of 2018, and one of YALSA's Great Graphic Novels For Teens.
