NEWSROOM POST: LAMBERTVILLE, NJ
(Lambertville, NJ) – Kick off Pride Month and join the Acme Screening Room on Saturday May 6 at 4pm for an author talk with Lambda Literary Award winner Jobert E. Abueva of his book Boy Wander. A book signing and reception will follow. Sponsored by New Hope Celebrates.
Boy Wander is an intimate coming-of-age portrait of the author’s sexuality as seen through the eyes of a child of the 1960s and 70s and a teenager before the advent of AIDS and finally as a young man arriving in America. From Manila, Kathmandu, Bangkok, and Kyoto to New York, Chicago, and San Francisco, the author navigates denial and acceptance, erotic and unconditional love, transience, and transnationalism. Even as the world has become more accepting over the decades, this book’s present-day relevance provides inspiration to those struggling to reconcile family values and societal expectations with being true to themselves.
