Juno Morrow, Assistant Professor of Game Design at Hostos Community College, has penned her first book titled, “Marginalia.” Published by CLASH Books "Marginalia" is slated to be released on June 23. On the cover, Heather Huggins, Assistant Professor of Theater Arts at Queens College, says, “Marginalia is necessary, it is valuable, it will soon be a story shared as a must read.”
CLASH Books describes “Marginalia” as a construction of “words, artwork, photos and personal artifacts…an intimate and unconventional account of what it means to be a hybrid. It seamlessly interweaves experience with elements of sociology and psychology, exploring how one cultivates an identity containing multitudes – queer, trans, mixed-race, other.”
Morrow is a multidisciplinary artist, independent game designer, photographer, and educator. Prior to her time at Hostos, she earned an MFA in Design and Technology from Parsons. As an internationally exhibiting artist and designer, Morrow has presented games and spoken at sites like SXSW, GDC, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Her award-winning photography has been featured in “The Guardian" and "Dwell Magazine."
 “Reading the stories of others like me helped to unearth and validate my feelings, paving the way to address and alleviate them,” said Morrow. “Writings on the intersection of race, sexuality and gender helped me to recognize the validity of my identity and the viability of being myself. When you’ve lived alone with the shame of deviance and moralized difference, therapeutic barely begins to describe the process of breaking that silence. My hope is to give back to the LGBTQ community, those that do not yet have a sense of community, and others left alienated by society. We need to know that we are not alone.”
