how to get a girl pregnant, a memoir by Karleen Pendleton Jimenez, is being launched next week by Tightrope Books.
As long as she can remember, Karleen has wanted to have a baby; but that can prove a little difficult when you are a butch Chicana lesbian. Not deterred by this fact, Karleen embarks on a journey that spans several years, numerous doctors, and more than a few men as she relentlessly pursues her dream. Sometimes heart-warming, at other times heart-wrenching, and always with a bit of humour; Karleen writes with openness and honesty, holding nothing back from her experiences as she attempts to achieve her dream of giving birth to a child.
Come to Slack’s Restaurant in Toronto on 17 November 2011 for the official launch along with Ashley Little’s Prick and Kathryn Mockler’s Onion Man.
