Join us on June 21st as we celebrate PRIDE month. 

 

Stonewall Book Award Winner!

A fierce coming-of-age verse novel about identity and the power of drag, from acclaimed poet and performer Dean Atta. Perfect for fans of Elizabeth Acevedo, Jason Reynolds, and Kacen Callender.

Michael is a mixed-race gay teen growing up in London. All his life, he’s navigated what it means to be Greek-Cypriot and Jamaican—but never quite feeling Greek or Black enough.

As he gets older, Michael’s coming out is only the start of learning who he is and where he fits in. When he discovers the Drag Society, he finally finds where he belongs—and the Black Flamingo is born.

Told with raw honesty, insight, and lyricism, this debut explores the layers of identity that make us who we are—and allow us to shine.

Get a behind-the-scenes look at how the Nyack Library creates and presents our Schubert Award-winning Black American Culture and Arts series, originally inspired by and focused on the life and legacy of Dr. Toni Morrison. This series continues in 2021, with the Black Family as its theme, and includes our upcoming four programs devoted to Juneteenth, now an official New York state holiday. We also touch upon the challenges of library work during the pandemic and how living in the virtual world allowed us to re-think and recreate our approach to programming.
