Told by Jan Andrews
Tuesday, October 4, 2016
What happens when a young man must dress as a woman to succeed in his coming of age ritual? When an aging lesbian remembers herself as that small girl who wanted nothing more in the world than to be a boy? Weaving literary and personal stories together, Jan captures it all in a story that speaks clearly for a generation of women whose voices are rarely heard.
“An extraordinary drama of discovery,” Jo Radner, past president, National Storytelling Network, U.S.A.
The concert is both CD launch and fundraiser for PAL Ottawa.
