Book Club: March - session two
New session added!
Due to popular demand, we have added a second session for the March Book Club discussing Ten Steps to Nanette, by Hannah Gadsby.
About the AV Book Club
If you enjoy reading fiction and would like to have an incentive to read more, expand your reading list, and to meet with others to share your thoughts and insights and to hear others' perspectives, consider joining the AV Book Club for your next literary adventure. We read and discuss work by autistic authors as well as non-autistic authors.
This month, we will discuss Ten Steps to Nanette, by Hannah Gadsby.
'There is nothing stronger than a broken woman who has rebuilt herself.' – Hannah Gadsby, Nanette
Gadsby's unique stand-up special Nanette was a viral success that left audiences captivated by her
blistering honesty and her ability to create both tension and laughter in a single moment. But while her worldwide fame might have looked like an overnight sensation, her path from open mic to the
global stage was hard-fought and anything but linear.
Ten Steps to Nanette traces Gadsby's growth as a queer person from Tasmania-where homosexuality was illegal until 1997-to her ever-evolving relationship with comedy, to her struggle with late-in-life diagnoses of autism and ADHD, and finally to the backbone of Nanette - the renouncement of self-deprecation, the rejection of misogyny, and the moral significance of truth-telling. Equal parts harrowing and hilarious, Ten Steps to Nanette continues Gadsby's tradition of confounding expectations and norms, properly introducing us to one of the most explosive, formative voices of our time.
