|11:45 am - "What Becomes You" readings in Virginia & DC Sunday and Monday|
In addition to the reading and performance my dear friend Aaron will be doing for his book What Becomes You, on Tuesday at 5:30, in College Park.
Also, last night I found out that he'll also be doing similar events on Sunday and Monday of this coming week (February 3rd & 4th):
Here's the Press Release:
Author Event: "What Becomes You"
When: Sun, Feb 3, 4pm – 6pm
Where: 4pm Author Talk at Shirlington Library, followed by a book signing at Busboys and Poets Bookstore
Description: Aaron Raz will discuss and sign "What becomes You" "Being a man, like being a woman, is something you have to learn" Aaron Raz Link remarks. Few would know this better than the coauthor of What Becomes You, who began life as a girl named Sarah and twenty-nine years later began life anew as a gay man. Turning from female to male and from teaching scientist to theatre performer, Link documents the extraordinary medical, social, legal, and personal process involved in a complete identity change. Hilda Raz, a well- known feminist writer and teacher, observes the process as both an "astonished" parent and as a professor who has studied gender issues. All these perspectives come into play in this collaborative memoir, which travels between women's experience and men's lives, explores the art and science of changing sex, maps uncharted family values, and journeys through a world transformed by surgery, hormones, love, and...clown school. Combining personal experience and critical analysis, the book is an unusual — and unusually fascinating — reflection on gender, sex, and the art of living.
