Please join us for an afternoon in honor of the Morris Kight biography "Morris Kight: Humanist, Liberationist, Fantabulist: A Story of Gay Rights and Gay Wrongs" with writer Mary Ann Cherry.
The afternoon will include a conversation that was pre-recorded specifically for this event between Cherry and Rev. Troy Perry, comparing Perry's 1970s activism with what is going on today. Cherry will also talk with Dr. Jon Platania, original co-founder and board member of the Gay Community Services Center. Cherry will share videos of Morris, headlines and details not-in-the-book. There will be some surprise readers and a special live performance by favorite American Songstress, Jolie Holland.
In the great tradition of Kight's famous McCadden Place happenings, this event will include musical entertainment, laughs, and fun. You'll have to bring your own snacks and sips. Cherry will share her journey of making the book and answer questions from the audience (submitted live or before hand). For more on the book and event, visit one.usc.edu
