Alysia Abbott, author of Fairlyland: A Memoir of My Father
Bread and Roses welcomes Alysia Abbott, author of Fairlyland: A Memoir of My Father. A child's eye view of the gay liberation movement--from the awakening of the community after the Stonewall riots, through the devastation of the AIDS crisis. The book is a moving tribute to her father, writer Steve Abbott, a pioneering single, gay parent. Alysia Abbott gives us an unforgettable portrait of a tumultuous, historic time in San Francisco as well as an exquisitely moving account of a father’s legacy and a daughter’s love. Make a pledge to KBOO during the hour and get a copy of Fairyland. Leigh Anne Kranz hosts.
