Book Launch & Signing - Robyn Ryle
Village Lights will host the national launch of She/He/They/Me: For the Sisters, Misters, and Binary Resisters, a non-fiction book by Robyn Ryle, published by Sourcebooks. If you've ever questioned the logic of basing an entire identity around what you have between your legs, it's time to embark on a daring escape outside of the binary box. Open your eyes to what it means to be a boy or a girl - or above and beyond!
Dr. Robyn Ryle grew up reading choose-your-own-adventure books and has more than fifteen years of experience making the topic of gender interesting and approachable. Her textbook, Questioning Gender: A Sociological Exploration is in its third edition and has been translated into Korean. Her writing on gender inequality appears in Investigating Social Problems (SAGE Press, 2014) and the Wiley-Blackwell Encyclopedia of Gender and Sexuality. She has published essays on gender and race at Gawker, StorySouth, and Little Fiction/Big Truths, among others. She has a PhD in sociology from Indiana University-Bloomington and is currently professor of sociology and gender studies at Hanover College in Hanover, Indiana. In her spare time, she enjoys knitting, gardening, baking, playing music (badly), and generally enjoying small-town life in Madison, Indiana. She lives in a 140-year-old house with her husband, her daughter, and two peculiar cats.
You can pre-order the book now from Village Lights.
