Book cover for Tomboyland: Essays by Melissa Faliveno

Tuesday, January 19, 2021 through Thursday, January 21, 2021. Read by Michele Good.

Part personal narrative, part cultural reportage, “Tomboyland” navigates midwestern traditions, mythologies, landscapes, and lives to explore the intersections of identity and place. Faliveno asks curious, honest, and often darkly funny questions about belonging and the body, isolation and community, and what we mean when we use words like woman, family, and home.
