6 Years in Gay Conversion Therapy

May 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Peter Gajdics is the author of The Inheritance of Shame, just published by Brown Paper Press, which tells the harrowingly true story of his six years in Gay conversion therapy.

Garrard Conley, author of Boy Erased, says the Gajdics memoir is “a necessary, incredibly nuanced portrait of a survivor. The Inheritance of Shame will change lives.” Gajdics, from Canada, appears with Bay Area author Anne Raeff Tuesday, May 23, 7-8 p.m. at Dog Eared Books Castro, 489 Castro St. in San Francisco. Raeff will interview Gajdics, and both authors will read from their work. Raeff’s short-story collection The Jungle Around Us is a finalist for the California Book Award and won the Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction.

Free admission and free refreshments. A book signing follows the discussion.
