LAMBDA Award-winning Author Julia Watts (Quiver) brings the Appalachian LGBTQ experience to life in her latest Young Adult novel, NEEDLEWORK. This cricitically-acclaimed new novel is one of 8 LAMBDA-recommended Queer YA novels for Fall 2021. Publishers Weekly says it “depicts queer existence in a conservative white Appalachian town with realism and, effectively, hope…A poignant exploration of the generational trauma caused by poverty, addiction, and racism, and of the power of being loved for oneself.” Kirkus Reviews raves: “The overall tone is hopeful—not unlike a Dolly Parton song.”
To celebrate the launch Julia Watts is in conversion with award-winning queer YA author Aimee Herman (Everything Grows). Plus, Julia will also read an excerpt from this highly-recommended new novel. Three Rooms Press co-director Kat Georges hosts.
