Community Book Discussion: Out of Step
The Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center invites the community to participate in our November 2019 Community Book Discussion featuring Out of Step: A Memoir by Anthony Moll. Out of Step traces Moll’s development through his military service, recounting how the army both breaks and builds relationships, and what it was like to explore his queer identity while also coming to terms with his role in the nation’s ugly foreign policy. From a punk, nerdy, left-leaning, poor boy in Nevada leaving home for the first time to an adult returning to civilian life and forced to address a world more complicated than he was raised to believe, Moll’s journey isn’t a classic flag-waving memoir or war story—it’s a tale of finding one’s identity in the face of war and changing ideals.
Community Book Discussions at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center are facilitated by Mary Foltz. The first ten community members to sign up (contact firstname.lastname@example.org) receive a free copy of the book.
This program is sponsored by Lehigh University’s South Side Initiative and Humanities Center as well as Let’s Play Books.
This is a sober social event at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center. No alcohol will be served.
