Book Discussion | Lesbian Love Story by Amelia Possanza (In Person AND Online)


When Amelia Possanza moved to Brooklyn to build a life of her own, she found herself surrounded by queer stories: she read them on landmark placards, overheard them on the pool deck when she joined the world's largest LGBTQ swim team, and even watched them on TV in her cockroach-infested apartment. They inspired her to seek out lesbians throughout history who could become her guides, in romance and in life. Possanza journeys into the archives to recover the personal histories of lesbians in the 20th century: who they were, how they loved, why their stories were destroyed, and where their memories echo and live on. Amelia Possanza speaks with author Casey McQuiston about how lesbian love could help reimagine care and community. About the Speakers A full-time book publicist and part-time writer, Amelia Possanza's work has appeared in The Washington Post, BuzzFeed, Electric Literature, The Millions, and NPR's Invisibilia. Lesbian Love Story is her first book. Casey McQuiston is a #1 New York Times bestselling author of romantic comedies, including One Last Stop, Red, White & Royal Blue, and I Kissed Shara Wheeler, whose writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Bon Appetit.

One night in New York City’s Chinatown, a woman is at a work reunion dinner with former colleagues when she excuses herself to buy a pack of cigarettes. On her way back, she runs into a former boyfriend. And then another. And . . . another. Nothing is quite what it seems as the city becomes awash with ghosts of heartbreaks past.
