Monthly Milwaukee Meeting: Author Bridget Birdsall
November 28, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm CST
Bridget Birdsall believes books save lives. In 2012, after relentlessly being bullied for being “different,” Bridget’s nephew took his life. Since that time, Bridget has been empowering people, especially young people, through the transformative power of words.
When those of us who do not “fit” into the typical societal, religious or familial boxes begin to share our stories: WATCH OUT! Not only do we support one another, but the world as we know it, may actually change. This is because sharing our stories heals our lives, our communities and our world. Bridget wants you to know that YOU MATTER, your stories matter, no matter who you are or how “different” you feel.
Using her award-winning novel Double Exposure, Bridget seeks to uplift, inspire and empower all LGBTQIAA identifying people to stand proudly in who they are and to help us all write a new narrative!
