In his memoir, Garrard Conley shares stories dealing with growing up in a fundamentalist household and attending a conversion therapy program. Conley had to dig deep to find compassion for himself and his counselors who harmed him. Look for his presentation in the Authors Tent from 1:00 pm to 1:25 pm at Books in Bloom, Sunday, May 21. Not to be missed!
