Event description

Description

Drafts reveals Mark Travis Rivera’s journey as a Latino, born with cerebral palsy, living with his single mother in an inner city environment. Rivera endured oppression and bullying from an early age. In the face of such experiences, coming out as gay with a nonconforming gender identity required immense strength and courage. Drafts is a collection of poems, diary entries and personal essays that reveal Rivera’s journey from youth to adulthood and his evolution through pain and heartache to self-discovery. Despite discrimination, homophobia, and ableism, Rivera never lost hope. He has suffered, but he has also grown and thrived. His poems and essays offer insight into a remarkable life.

Join Mark for his book launch event which will take place on September 30th at 7 p.m. at Bluestockings Bookstore.

Mark will be doing a public reading plus a talk back with the audience. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
