Mass Humanities and Harvard Book Store welcome award-winning blogger, memoirist, and essayist WILLIAM DAMERON for a discussion of his debut memoir, "The Lie: A Memoir of Two Marriages, Catfishing & Coming Out." He will be joined in conversation by ALYSIA ABBOTT, award-winning author of Fairyland, A Memoir of My Father. In this emotional and unflinchingly honest memoir of coming out of the closet late in life, owning up to the past, and facing the future, William Dameron confronts steroid addiction, the shame and homophobia of his childhood, the sledgehammer of secrets that slowly tore his marriage apart, and his love for a gay father of three that would once again challenge the boundaries of trust.
