On hand tonight to talk about and read from the book will be: Editor, Candace Walsh, and contributors Emily Withnall and Pat Crow.
In an increasingly common phenomenon, women who once identified as straight are leaving men for women⎯and they have fascinating stories to tell.
In this sequel to Lambda Literary Finalist Dear John, I Love Jane: Women Write About Leaving Men for Women, writers who come from a diverse array of perspectives open up and bare their souls. Essays on subjects such as repercussions, both bad and good; exes, both furious and supportive; bewildered and loyal family and friends; mind-blowing sexual and emotional awakenings; falling in the deepest of love; and finding a sense of community fill the pages of this anthology. One story is as different from the next as one person is from another.
With a foreword by former Editor in Chief of AfterEllen Trish Bendix, and essays by acclaimed writers including BK Loren, Louise A. Blum, and Leah Lax, relax, sit back and take a journey into Janeland-⎯a very special place where women search for, discover, and live their own personal truths.
