Melissa Hart: "Gringa: A Contradictory Girlhood"
Host Crystal Leighty speaks with author Melissa Hart about her new memoir, Gringa: A Contradictory Girlhood. “You can’t grow up parented by two women. It’s unnatural.” This is the rationale that allows Melissa Hart’s father to take custody of his three young children. Hart tells the story of enforced separation from her mother and the comfort she takes in Latino culture as she attempts to establish her identity in two increasingly divergent worlds."Gringa is a tender and smart memoir that brings vivid context to the coming-of-age journey after a parent comes out of the closet."--Abigail Garner, author of Families Like Mine: Children of Gay Parents Tell It Like It Is
