For more information about the book and the author, check out Schwartz interviewed by NPR’s Terry Gross:
 
 
New York Times correspondent John Schwartz is coming to our community to speak about his new book, Oddly Normal, the memoir of a father who knows early on that his son is different. The author shares his families challenges with educators that aim to define their son as an outsider, how they handle the “should we just ask him if he’s gay” question, and talks about loving our children, especially when they do not yet know how to love themselves.
 
“Oddly Normal: One Family’s Struggle to Help Their Teenage Son Come to
Terms With His Sexuality”
April 23rd, 2013
5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Colorado College, Gates Common Room
This event is free to the public, with donations welcome.
 
Inside Out Youth Services is grateful for the help of the Colorado Springs Independent, PFLAG of Colorado Springs, and the Colorado College in bringing Schwartz to our community for this important conversation about the needs of LGBT children and their families.

    I couldn’t be at the Reading/panel, so I did the next best thing. I got the book and am reading it now. I facilitate a PFLAG ( parents, families and friends of lesbians and gays) in Highlands Ranch CO, and one in Arizona., and I’ll make sure we have a copy in both libraries and one on my own bookshelf. And I’ll recommend it to my Bookgroup as well. Thanks for speaking out for our kids!
