Author Barry Jean Borich will be a featured speaker at the 2013 OutWrite LGBT Book Festival.
Barrie Jean Borich is the author of the recently-released Body Geographic in March 2013, which turns personal history into an inspired reflection on the points where place and person intersect, where running away meets running toward, and where dislocation means finding oneself. Publishers Weekly has termed the book "a gritty, poetic tour of [Borich's] personal geography."
Borich has also written My Lesbian Husband, which is the winner of the American Library Association Stonewall Book Award. This book is about a 12-year relationship with Linnea, and delves into the details of a non-gender binary relationship. Reviews of her work reflect the attention Borich gives to artistically constructing her words, regardless of whether the topic is mundane or magnificent.. Her work is innovative because she writes in the style of creative nonfiction.
The OutWrite Book Fair is a weekend full of book readings, book vendors, book discussions, poetry readings and more. We have both new and used LGBT themed books and magazines for sale all day long. In addition to book vendors, the DC Center has a large number of used LGBT books for sale.
