Aaron Raz Link, coauthor of the memoir, What Becomes You, will read from his book and answer questions from the audience in the Campus Library Rotunda on Thursday, May 3 at 7:00PM. The event is free and refreshments will be served.
Drawing on his own transsexual transformation from a woman to a man, Link will use masks and puppetry to explore the stories we tell about men, women, science, truth, mothers and daughters, and mothers and sons. Turning from female to male and from a teaching scientist to theatre performer, Link documents the extraordinary medical, social, legal, and personal process involved in a complete identity change. The evening includes a DVD interview with Link’s mother, Nebraska poet, editor and coauthor of the book, Hilda Raz. The reading is co-sponsored by Human Dignity Coalition in Bend.
