Don’t follow me on Instagram yet? Maybe do that!
This Friday at 12pm Eastern I’ll be on IG Live looking through pages I (or previous owners???) dog-eared in various books for about an hour. I’ll read any notable excerpts on the page and chat a bit about why I was drawn to it (or try to remember why I was drawn to it). We made it through about half of the books last week, so we’re going for the rest this week!
No, I will NOT promise to stop doing this to books, but PLEASE join to berate me or share your own dog-eared pages. You can even request to be part of the Live and I’ll pull you onto the screen with me!
This was inspired by Rob Neill (@astronautone) opening mail on the San Francisco Neo-futurists’ IG (@sfneofuturists) - consider giving them a follow too!
Consider donating to one or all of the following orgs, which focus on queer and trans youth and Black trans people. Please also look into your local Black Lives Matter chapter (here’s BLM in DC) and assist their mutual aid efforts through donations and showing up to support as needed. If you’re able I ask you to especially consider setting up a recurring donation, not just dropping some money once.
