We are officially in the mad rush of visiting authors, as you will probably notice from upcoming issues loaded with book reviews, author interviews and more. But here's one that unfortunately slipped through our fingers: Jennifer Finney Boylan, one of the leading transgender writers around who made a big splash with her 2003 memoir, She's Not There: A Life in Two Genders.
Boylan recently released her second memoir, I'm Looking Through You: Growing Up Haunted, which uses the word haunted in unexpected ways. Boylan will appear tonight at the Margaret Mitchell House for a reading and signing. The reception starts at 6 p.m.; the reading kicks in at 7:30. Admission is free for members, $10 for the general public.
Here's a little reading she did at her home, accompanied by her pet Lab, apparently.
