This classic romance is wholesome, tender — and radical.

Nancy Garden’s banned book “Annie on my Mind” was revolutionary for its time in 1982, daring to give lesbian characters a happy ending. The novel tells the story of two wildly different young women, one a serious private school student dreaming of going to MIT for architecture and the other a more whimsical singer from a rough area of New York City. In a chance encounter, the two meet in a museum one rainy day, bonding immediately and falling for each other more slowly. Above all, “Annie on my Mind” is tender and sweet. “Annie” is a story for anyone who has been marginalized and misunderstood — yet still dares to envision their own radical happy ending.
