Library Exhibition on Transgender Issues

On September 5th, Amy Ellis Nutt, author of Becoming Nicole, will speak at the Illinois Wesleyan University President’s Convocation. Becoming Nicole is the university’s Summer Reading Program selection and follows the story of the Maines family and their transgender daughter Nicole, who was born male.

After the convocation and throughout the month of October, we invite you to view our exhibition “Changing Climates: Born this Way,” which includes eight books from The Ames Library collection about transgender issues. There are also handouts that explain how to be a trans ally and the spectrum of sex and gender. You can check out any of these books at the Library Services Desk if you’re interested, and grab a handout or two as well!
