Gabby Rivera - Juliet Takes a Breath — in conversation with Elizabeth Acevedo — at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Thursday, September 26, 2019 - 7:00pm

Juliet Milagros Palante just earned the internship of her dreams, and is leaving the Bronx for Portland, Oregon to work for her favorite feminist writer. The night before she leaves, she decides to come out to her family—something she never planned on doing. Unfortunately, it doesn’t go well. Her only hope is that Harlowe Brisbane, a feminist savant, expert on women’s bodies and queer culture, will help her figure out how to be an out and proud Latinx lesbian. But Brisbane is white, she’s not from the Bronx, and she doesn’t actually have all the answers. In a story bursting with queer kinship, summer flings and unabashed examinations of race and identity, Juliet learns what it means to come out—to friends, to family, and to herself. Ages 15 and up.
