Queer Brown Voices

Histories of LGBT activism in the 1970's, 80's, and 90's often reduce the role that Latinas/os played, resulting in misinformation, or ignore them entirely, erasing them from history.

Author Reading: Rebecca Scherm, UNBECOMING

Searching for a new psychological thriller after reading GIRL ON THE TRAIN? UNBECOMING is it. Come join us for a reading, signing, and conversation with author Rebecca Scherm for the paperback tour of her debut novel UNBECOMING. On the grubby outskirts of Paris, Grace restores bric-a-brac, mends teapots, and resets gems. She calls herself Julie, says she's from California, and slips back to a rented room at night. In truth, home is Garland, Tennessee, where two young men have just been paroled. Both were jailed for a crime that Grace planned. The heist went bad but not before she was on a plane to Prague, contraband in her bag. As Grace's web of deception unravels, she begins a cat-and-mouse game that echoes the best of Alfred Hitchcock and Patricia Highsmith. Rebecca Scherm is a graduate of New York University and the Helen Zell Writers Program at the University of Michigan. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, Jezebel, The Toast, Subtropics, and elsewhere. She lives in Michigan, where she is at work on her second novel. This free event is open to everyone.
