The Birdverse & Beyond with R.B. Lemberg

You're invited to join us for a special event with queer Jewish author, R.B. Lemberg! 

R.B. Lemberg, the author of the Birdverse stories and The Four Profound Weaves, will be coming (virtually) to T'chiyah for an author talk and Q&A session over Zoom on June 13th, from 2:00-3:00 PM EDT / 11:00 AM-Noon PDT. 

As we celebrate LGBTQIA+ Pride Month, this will be a great opportunity to talk about trans joy, gender euphoria, stories of hope and healing, immigration, piyyut (Jewish liturgical music) studies, found family, or disability justice with R.B. Lemberg.

This special event is open to members of our Speculative Wisdom reading group and the public at no charge. There will be an opportunity for Speculative Wisdom attendees to submit questions in advance. The session will be recorded for the benefit of those who cannot make it.
