Welcome Home: My Journey Through Foster Care, Coming Out, and Reuniting With Family
June 17, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Marpheen Chann, is a Portland, Maine-based thinker, writer, educator and speaker on social justice, equity, and inclusion. In “Welcome Home,” Marpheen shares his insights, lessons learned, and maybe a few laughs as he shares his story as a second-generation Cambodian American who went through foster care and adoption, struggled with fitting in and adapting to a white-majority community, and coming out as gay to his devoutly religious family. Marpheen will be joining us via Zoom. Register here: http://bit.ly/marpheen
This is part of our “Community” book discussion series. As part of the discussion with Marpheen, we will also talk about the bestselling book, “Tales of the City” by Armistead Maupin.
