Virtual Author Series: Taylor Brorby

Opera House

We are proud to bring memoirist Taylor Brorby to our author series for a discussion about his book Boys and Oil: Growing up gay in a fractured land. Brorby will read from his book, an account of his childhood and adolescence in Center, North Dakota interwoven with historic coal-country vignettes. Of Brorby's book New York Times critic Jung Yun writes, "a good memoir allows readers to find moments of common ground with the author. A great memoir, however, renders moments wholly outside of the reader's experience in ways that evoke emotion and understanding." You can register for Brorby's talk here, and you can also purchase his book in our bookstore here.
