Juliet Takes a Breath

Are you looking to connect with others? Do you love reading all kinds of books? If you answered yes, the Community Book Club is for you!

Join us and explore Juliet Takes a Breath by Gabby Rivera. The book focuses on Juliet Milagros Palante, who is leaving the Bronx and headed to Portland, Oregon. She just came out to her family and isn’t sure if her mom will ever speak to her again. But Juliet has a plan, sort of, one that’s going to help her figure out this whole “Puerto Rican lesbian” thing. She’s interning with the author of her favorite book: Harlowe Brisbane, the ultimate authority on feminism, women’s bodies, and other gay-sounding stuff. Will Juliet be able to figure out her life over the course of one magical summer? Is that even possible? Or is she running away from all the problems that seem too big to handle? With more questions than answers, Juliet takes on Portland, Harlowe, and most importantly, herself.

The Community Book Club meets every other Thursday evening, beginning October 7, via Zoom.

To register, send an email to community@iit.edu, and you will receive the meeting credentials.
