Author of "My Son Wears Heels" to Speak at the Scarsdale Library
Julie Tarney, author of "My Son Wears Heels: One Mother's Journey from Clueless to Kickass," will speak at the Scarsdale Public Library on Monday, March 27, at 7:30 p.m.
The book is a memoir by a mother who in the early 1990s embraced her child's uniqueness, and her own, as she learned the truth about gender identity, expression and self-acceptance from her son. This was a time before the internet and open discussion of sexual identity and transgender issues.
Tarney is a board member of the It Gets Better Project and blogs for Huffington Post's "Queer Voices" page.
The program is co-sponsored by the library and the Jewish Community Center Mid-Westchester. Registration is required at the library website, scarsdalelibrary.org, or by calling (914) 722-1302.
