The WAR Series: Writers as Readers, with S. Bear Bergman

The WAR Series: Writers as Readers, with S. Bear Bergman

S. Bear Bergman is a respected lecturer on trans and gender issues, appearing at schools, universities and events across North America. His acclaimed writing, including Butch Is a Noun and The Nearest Exit May Be Behind You are essential reading on trans life. His newest essay collection is Blood, Marriage, Wine and Glitter (Aresenal Pulp Press). Tender and hilarious, the book examines family (both biological and extended) in the context of trans experiences.

Today Bear joins us as part of our WAR Series: Writers As Readers, which gives writers an opportunity to talk about the books that shaped them, from first loves to new favourites.
