April 21st at 3pm via Zoom.

Join the Callander Public Library in a virtual chat with Meredith Talusan, author of Fairest, a coming-of-age memoir of a Filipino boy with albinism whose story travels from an immigrant childhood to Harvard to a gender transition and illuminates the illusions of race, disability, and gender.

Fairest is a widely praised memoir which Kirkus Reviews called, “captivatingly eloquent.” It was excerpted in the New York Times, selected as a most anticipated book of 2020 by O: The Oprah Magazine, and is the People and In Style Magazine Pick for June. Meredith is founding executive editor of them., Condé Nast’s first-ever platform devoted to the queer community. An award-winning journalist and author, Meredith has written features, essays, and opinion pieces for many publications including The Guardian, The New York Times, The Atlantic, VICE Magazine, WIRED, The Nation, Mic, BuzzFeed News, and The American Prospect. She is the recipient of the 2017 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Digital Journalism, and has contributed to several books, including Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump’s America.
