Louis Stokes Wing Auditorium • Main Library
One day, John Schwartz received the phone call no parent should ever receive. After finally mustering the courage to come out to his classmates in an emotional tirade and being met only with dismay and confusion by his fellow students, Schwartz’ 13 year old son attempted suicide.
Oddly Normal: One Family’s Struggle to Help Their Teenage Son Come to Terms With His Sexuality describes the family’s journey toward a happier life for their son and provides a series of crucial and meaningful lessons in helping gay kids, or any kid who is “different,” learn how to navigate and cope in a sometimes hostile world.
Schwartz has covered law, science, technology, business, and a range of other topics for The New York Times, and authored Short: Walking Tall When You’re Not Tall at All.
Books will be available for sale at the event and at aculturalexchange.org.
All writers & readers series programs are free and open to the public. Seating is offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
