GLBT History Museum: The Ventriloquists: A Novel of Queer Resistance
September 26, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Novelist E. R. Ramzipoor will read selections from her new novel, “The Ventriloquists” (Park Row Books, 2019), a work inspired by the true story of a ragtag gang of journalists and resistance fighters who published a false, satirical edition of the Nazi-controlled Brussels newspaper “Le Soir” during World War II. Inviting the reader on a fast-paced, high-stakes caper featuring a diverse cast of queer heroes, the novel highlights the LGBTQ community’s role in reclaiming occupied spaces.
Ramzipoor will supplement her talk by discussing stories of everyday queer heroes from World War II until the present, focusing on ordinary people who carried out daring feats of resistance.
