Sarah Moon and Amy Bloom, "The Letter Q: Queer Writers' Notes to their Younger Selves"
Jun 18 2012 7:00 pm
Celebrating Gay Pride Month!
We all wish we could talk to our younger selves, to provide reassurance at an age when apprehension and insecurity can tear and eat at the people we could become. The Letter Q is a collection of letters written by sixty-three award winning LGBT authors to themselves at a younger age. Each letter will take your hand and lead you on a path of raw emotion, sadness, vulnerability, but will have you arriving at a place where hope remains a constant and brighter days are realized.
Life-saving letters from a glittering wishlist of top authors.
If you received a letter from your older self, what do you think it would say? What do you wish it would say?
That the boy you were crushing on in History turns out to be gay too, and that you become boyfriends in college? That the bully who is making your life miserable will one day become so insignificant that you won't remember his name until he shows up at your book signing?
In this anthology, sixty-three award-winning authors such as Michael Cunningham, Amy Bloom, Jacqueline Woodson, Gregory Maguire, David Levithan, and Armistead Maupin make imaginative journeys into their pasts, telling their younger selves what they would have liked to know then about their lives as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgendered people. Through stories, in pictures, with bracing honesty, these are words of love and understanding, reasons to hold on for the better future ahead. They will tell you things about your favorite authors that you never knew before. And they will tell you about yourself.
