Book selection: I Hope We Choose Love by Kai Cheng Thom

Book description:

i Hope We Choose Love: A Trans Girl's Notes from the End of the World

What can we hope for at the end of the world? What can we trust in when community has broken our hearts? What would it mean to pursue justice without violence? How can we love in the absence of faith?

In a heartbreaking yet hopeful collection of personal essays and prose poems, blending the confessional, political, and literary, Kai Cheng Thom dives deep into the questions that haunt social movements today. With the author's characteristic eloquence and honesty, I Hope We Choose Love proposes heartfelt solutions on the topics of violence, complicity, family, vengeance, and forgiveness. Taking its cues from contemporary thought leaders in the transformative justice movement such as adrienne maree brown and Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, this provocative book is a call for nuance in a time of political polarization, for healing in a time of justice, and for love in an apocalypse.

Event description:
Each month the Tool Shed book club meets to discuss a book or other piece of writing that sheds light on sexuality today.

Book club meetings are hosted by the Tool Shed staff, and we pick different readings based on group interests. Participants are welcome on a drop-in basis; a monthly commitment is not necessary. Please join us!  We will post the Zoom link to the virtual meeting here and on our Facebook events page shortly before the event begins.

Upcoming book club selections are available for 20% off the cover price at the Tool Shed. Please help support the Tool Shed by purchasing your book club books with us!

The Tool Shed Book Club is a FREE event. Pre-registration is not necessary.
