Join students in Contemporary LGBT Literature April 22 at 7 PM for a reading with Jordy Rosenberg. This is the third in a series of “live” public events featuring authors students are reading this semester. Please register for this free event using EventBrite here and you will receive Zoom links both the day before and the day of the event.
Jordy Rosenberg is the author of the forthcoming hybrid work The Day Unravels What the Night Has Woven, the novel Confessions of the Fox (which GW students are reading), and a scholarly monograph about 18th-century religious enthusiasts. The Guardian notes that Confessions revolutionizes the historical novel, offering up the figure of Jack Sheppard as a “trans hero for the 18th century.” Confessions was a New York Times Editors Choice selection, shortlisted for the Center for Fiction First Novel Prize, a Lambda Literary Award, a Publishing Triangle Award, the UK Historical Writers Association Debut Crown Award, and longlisted for the Dublin Literary Award. Confessions has been recognized by The New Yorker and other venues as one of the Best Books of 2018.
Jordy is a professor at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst.
