Plainsboro Library Book Club

Our book club is open to all. We aren’t tied to a specific theme, and have read everything from nonfiction, memoirs, thrillers, literary fiction, and even a little bit of horror!
We generally meet every second Wednesday of the month at 7pm in the History Room, though check the website just in case there’s been a rare change in the schedule.

If you are curious to what we have read in the past, a list of the book club’s past selections are available here.


Current Book Club Selection:

Beyond Magenta: Transgender Teens Speak Out by Susan Kuklin
Date:  Wednesday, November 13, 2019
Time:  7:00 to 8:15pm
Location: 2nd Floor—History Room

Copies of the book are available for borrowing. Please inquire at the Reference Desk on the 2nd floor. Come to the meeting even if you haven’t finished the book.

Author and photographer Susan Kuklin met and interviewed six transgender or gender-neutral young adults and used her considerable skills to represent them thoughtfully and respectfully before, during, and after their personal acknowledgment of gender preference. Portraits, family photographs, and candid images grace the pages, augmenting the emotional and physical journey each youth has taken. Each honest discussion and disclosure, whether joyful or heartbreaking, is completely different from the other because of family dynamics, living situations, gender, and the transition these teens make in recognition of their true selves.
