S. Bear Bergman, Author of Nearest Exit May Be Behind You

Event date: 
Tuesday, April 20, 2010 - 6:30pm

The UW-Madison LGBT Campus Center is bringing author S. Bear Bergman to campus, and Room is hosting hir for a reading and book signing!

S. Bear Bergman is a writer, a theater artist, an instigator, a gender-jammer, and a good example of what happens when you overeducate a contrarian. Hir most recent book, The Nearest Exit May Be Behind You is a new collection of essays on gender and identity that is irrevocably honest and endlessly illuminating. With humour and grace, these essays deal with issues from women’s spaces to the old boys’ network, from gay male bathhouses to lesbian potlucks, from being a child to preparing to have one; throughout, S. Bear Bergman shows us there are things you learn when you’re visibly different from those around you―whether it’s being transgressively gendered or readably queer.
