Peter Gajdics is the author of The Inheritance of Shame, just published by Brown Paper Press, which tells the harrowingly true story of his six years in Gay conversion therapy. Garrard Conley, author of Boy Erased, says the Gajdics memoir is “a necessary, incredibly nuanced portrait of a survivor. The Inheritance of Shame will change lives." Gajdics, from Canada, appears with East Bay author Lucy Jane Bledsoe Thursday, May 25, 7-8 p.m. at Laurel Bookstore, 1423 Broadway, in Oakland. Bledsoe will interview Gajdics, and both authors will read from their work. Book signing follows.
