Thomas Page McBee’s Lambda award-winning memoir, Man Alive, was named a best book of 2014 by NPR Books, BuzzFeed, Kirkus, and Publisher's Weekly. His groundbreaking new book, Amateur: A True Story About What Makes a Man, is a reported memoir about learning how to box—and eventually become the first trans man to fight in Madison Square Garden—in order to understand masculinity’s tie to violence. A wide-ranging exploration of gender in our society, Amateur is ultimately a story of hope, as McBee traces a new way forward, a new kind of masculinity, inside the ring and outside of it. Join us for a reading, discussion, Q&A, and book signing!

"McBee takes us in his capable hands and shows us what it takes to become a man who is gloriously, gloriously alive.”—Roxane Gay
