In a Queer Voice
In a Queer Voice: Journeys of Resilience from Adolescence to Adulthood
Join Michael @bankstreetbooks for a signing, reading and discussion session of his book In a Queer Voice: Journeys of Resilience from Adolescence to Adulthood.
LGBTQ youth often have their voices silenced or marginalized, especially in school settings. In a Queer Voice not only provides a forum fo the voices of LGBTQ youth to be heard, it focuses on the ways that educators can help young people develop a positive and self-affirming "queer voice."
In this poignant and important book, Michael draws on two waves of interviews, conducted six years apart, chronicling how queer teens who were "silenced" in school now approach adulthood with a strong, queer voice.
Michael Sadowski is assistant professor on the New York City campus of Bard College's Master of Arts in Teaching Program. His work focuses on adolescent development and preparing middle and high school teachers for work in the New York City public schools. In addition to In a Queer Voice, he is the editor of Adolescents at School: Perspectives on Youth, Identity, and Education and Portraits of Promise: Voices of Successful Immigrant Students.
Open to teens, parents, educators, and other child care professionals.
