Author Talk: Leslie Absher – Spy Daughter, Queer Girl
Saturday, October 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
The Medford Public Library welcomes author Leslie Absher to talk about her book, “Spy Daughter, Queer Girl,” in which she pursues the truth: of her family, her identity, and her father’s role in Greece’s CIA-backed junta. As a guide, Absher brings readers to the shade of plane trees in Greece, to queer discos in Boston, and to tense diner meals with her aging CIA father. As a memoirist, Absher renders a lifetime of hazy, shapeshifting truths in high-definition vibrance. Infused with a journalist’s tenacity and a daughter’s open heart, this book recounts a decades-long process of discovery and the reason why the facts should matter to us all.
