Author of Heather Has Two Mommies to Speak at Marquette

From the Marquette News Briefs:
Author Lesléa Newman will present the 2011 Starshak Lecture, “Heather’s Mommy Speaks Out: A Presentation on Homophobia, Censorship and Family Values,” Tuesday, April 26, at 3:30 p.m. in Todd Wehr Chemistry 121.

Newman has written 60 books, including the children’s book, Heather Has Two Mommies, and the award-winning short story collection, A Letter to Harvey Milk. She has received the James Baldwin Award for Cultural Achievement, the Continuing the Legacy of Stonewall Award and the Hachamat Lev Award. A book signing will follow the presentation.

The 2011 Starshak Lecture is hosted by the Marquette Gender-Sexuality Alliance. For more information, contact Dr. Ed de St. Aubin, associate professor of psychology and GSA faculty adviser, at 8-2143.
Of course, Heather has no father. But gay political correctness demands that we overlook that.
