Ziggy, Stardust and Me

Debut young-adult novelist James Brandon will read selections from his new novel "Ziggy, Stardust and Me" (Penguin Random House, 2019) set in St. Louis in 1973, just months before homosexuality was delisted as a mental illness by the American Psychological Association. The novel follows the story of sixteen-year-old Jonathan Collins, who is fighting to overcome his “illness” when he meets Web, a Lakota Two Spirit. The two boys fall in love and struggle to retain their identities in a world that continually threatens to tear them apart.

The evening will include a wine reception, and copies of Ziggy, Stardust and Me will be available for purchase and signing.
