Jodie Patterson and Grace Bonney

Wednesday January 30: 7:00PM 8:00PM

This event is free to attend. Copies of The Bold World will be available for purchase at the event. This event will take place in the Rare Book Room, located on the 3rd floor of Strand and accessible via the stairs or elevator at 826 Broadway.

Inspired by her transgender son, activist Jodie Patterson explores identity, gender, race, and authenticity to tell the real-life story of a family’s history and transformation.

As an African American growing up on Manhattan’s Upper West Side in the 1970s, when neighborhoods defined people, Jodie Patterson learned early on to engage with her community for strength and comfort.

Join us in the Rare Book Room as Jodie sits down with author and entrepreneur Grace Bonney.
