Neilly Series Lecture: Garrard Conley

When: Tue., March 13, 7 p.m. 2018

Garrard Conley is the author of Boy Erased, a powerful memoir about a young man from rural Arkansas who becomes aware of his sexuality and learns to accept it. In his lecture, Conley will share his experience attending a conversion therapy program as a way of "curing" himself from his homosexuality, and will tell his story of breaking out in search of his true self and finding the power to forgive himself and those who wronged him.
