As our notions of feminism have evolved over the last several decades, so too has the body of literature by and about trans women. In this fiction reading and panel sponsored by the Barnard Library, celebrating the release of The Collection: Short Fiction from the Transgender Vanguard (Topside Press, 2012), four trans women authors will come together to discuss the future of literature, the complex ways that literary trans narratives will evolve in years to come, and their own stories of characters navigating relationships, gender, family, work, race, and more.

Featured Readers:

Imogen Binnie

Ryka Aoki

Donna Ostrowsky

Red Durkin


Reina Gossett will moderate a panel discussion with the authors following the reading.
