Tombolo Books in partnership with the Gulfport Public Library's LGBTQ Resource Center, Keep St. Pete Lit, and Your Real Stories is proud to welcome poet and professor Dr. Stephanie Burt to the bookstore as part of our ongoing poetry series co-hosted by Gloria Muñoz.

Dr. Burt will be reading from her forthcoming collection We Are Mermaids (Oct. 4) which is already being praised as her best book yet!

We Are Mermaids examines the things of this world, both real and imagined objects of fascination and desire. In this resplendent new collection, her observation and care flourish into her most fulfilled book yet. These poems shake off indecisiveness and doubt to reach joys through romance and family, through nature (urban and otherwise), and through imaginative community. We Are Mermaids is a trans book, a fangirl book, a book about coming together.

Let us know we will see you there! Please RSVP HERE!
