Author Jill Malone
In our culture, fiction is often our only place to experience rites of passage for girls and women. For LGBT youth, it is often also the only place they can access a communal experience of coming out. Malone reads from and discusses her book, “Giraffe People,” in which her protagonist, Cole Peters, goes through both of these nearly unacknowledged transitions.
