The Book Discussion & Presentation by Author Rhea Ewing

On Saturday, May 21, from 1 PM to 3 PM, participants in the 2022 Baraboo Reads project will gather at the Baraboo City Hall, 101 South Blvd. Baraboo, for a book discussion about Fine: A Comic About Gender, by former Baraboo resident Rhea Ewing. Ewing will be present to tell the audience what inspired the book, how the book project developed, and answer questions from the audience. Fine is part memoir, part psycho-sociological exploration, based on Ewing’s own odyssey of self-understanding, and interviews they gathered over a 10-year period that describe the many facets of gender expression. Ewing tells this story in the form of a graphic novel, illustrated in their evocative, two-color artwork.

This event, planned by the Baraboo Acts Coalition, the Carnegie-Schadde Memorial Public Library of Baraboo, and UW-Platteville Baraboo Sauk County, is designed to be a safe and respectful setting for the discussion of gender identity issues.

Sponsors of the 2022 Baraboo Reads include CAB Theatre, Carnegie-Schadde Memorial Public Library, Community First Bank, First Presbyterian Church of Baraboo, Friends of the Carnegie-Schadde Memorial Public Library, Queers and Allies, Spirit Lake Arts, Trinity Episcopal Church, UW-Platteville Baraboo Sauk County, Village Booksmith, WCCU (Westby Co-Op Credit Union) of Baraboo, and publisher W.W.
