Author Event: Diana Goetsch

Come to the Ames Public Library auditorium on Thursday, July 27, at 7 p.m. and hear from author Diana Goetsch about her book This Body I Wore. A poet and essayist, Goetsch will present her acclaimed memoir as part of a Red State Library Tour to support libraries and minorities being targeted by book bans.

This Body I Wore, hailed as “achingly beautiful” by The New York Times Book Review, chronicles the budding trans communities of the late 20th century and the light it sheds on today’s struggle for trans equality.

The reading and talk will be followed by Q&A discussion and book signing. Books can be purchased online from Dog-Eared Books ahead of time and picked up at the event. A small selection of books will also be available for purchase at the event.

Presented in partnership with Ames Public Library, Ames Pride, and Dog-Eared Books.
