Writer and current Sergeant with the San Francisco Police Department Adam Plantinga discusses his illuminating work on what being an officer is really like, 400 Things Cops Know: Street-Smart Lessons from a Veteran Patrolman. In a laconic, no-nonsense, dryly humorous style, Plantinga tells what he's learned from 13 years as a patrolman, from the everyday to the exotic.
With a PhD in cultural studies from Yale, with an emphasis in Queer history, former professor of Queer Studies at UC Santa Cruz and UC Berkeley, Katie Gilmartin shares her first work of fiction, Blackmail, My Love: A Murder Mystery.
Highly sought-out speaker on the topics of eating disorder recovery, body image, and coming out, Jon Derek Croteau, Ed.D., shares My Thinning Years: Starving the Gay Within. As a child, Jon tried desperately to be his father's version of the all-American boy, denying his gayness in a futile attempt to earn the love and respect of an abusive man. With this he built a deep, internalized homophobia that made him want to disappear rather than live with the truth about himself.
