“Nevo was not born in the wrong body. Nevo just wants everyone to catch up with all that Nevo is. Personal, political and passionate, Finding Nevo is an autobiography about gender and everything that comes with it.”
Squishy Minnie Bookstore is super excited to announce that our first EVER book launch will be for Finding Nevo, the brand new Young Adult memoir written by Nevo Zisin. Come and join us for a short question and answer session as well as an opportunity to speak with Nevo on the evening.
Nevo Zisin is a young activist, student, writer and public speaker with a particular focus on issues surrounding gender, sex and sexuality. Assigned female at birth, Nevo has had a complex relationship with gender, transitioning to present as male at the age of 17, undergoing different medical interventions and now identifying outside of a female/male gender binary. They work particularly with children as a youth leader and through running programs and workshops in schools. They are also a contact point in the Jewish community for other children and families confronting issues of gender and sexuality in their own lives. Finding Nevo is their first book.
Signed copies of Finding Nevo will be available for sale on the evening. RSVP below to attend.
A review for Finding Nevo written by Squishy Minnie’s resident young adult book reviewer Tahlia is available here.
