Zoom Talk – Magical Girls and Fighting Dreamers: Queer Representation in Manga and Anime

Tuesday, June 18th at 7:00 EST


We are thrilled to be partnering with the Morrill Memorial Library in Norwood for this fantastic program! Join fellow anime-enthusiast and MML Youth Services Librarian Dina Delic to learn about the history of queer representation in manga and anime! This program will give an overview of queer representation throughout various series, from The Rose of Versailles to Yuri on Ice, and will answer your most pressing questions: What is shipping? What is the difference between yaoi and yuri? Why are the greatest love stories in anime always platonic?

Please register for this event and you’ll receive the link in the confirmation and reminder emails – make sure to check your spam folder for them. The email will be coming from Zoom. 

This virtual event is hosted by the Norwood Public Library and a collaboration between the several Massachusetts libraries. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Ashland Public Library.
