Left Bank Books
Left Bank Books presents visual artist and writer Cooper Lee Bombardier, who will signs and discuss his debut book about queer and genderqueer identity, resilience, and joy, Pass with Care: Memoirs.
Pass with Care is a testament to trans resilience, queer joy, and the power of finding freedom and adventure within a community of your own creation. Transgender writer, artist, and activist Cooper Lee Bombardier shifts effortlessly between lyrical essays, poetry, and narrative nonfiction as his own landscape changes over the course of two decades. From working-class New England to the queer punk scene of early '90s-San Francisco to New Mexico's deserts, Bombardier documents his experiences with compassion and reverence, offering us an expansive view of gender and sexuality, masculinity and tenderness, and the difference between surviving and thriving.
Cooper Lee Bombardier is a writer and visual artist from the South Shore of Boston. HuffPost named him one of "10 Transgender Artists Who Are Changing the Landscape of Contemporary Art." He lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Pass with Care: Memoirs is his first book.
This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of Pass with Care: Memoirs from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
