Noah's Ark: Judith Frank Reads from Her Novel In Progress
Noah’s Ark centers upon a gay couple who become the guardians of two small children when one’s brother and sister-in-law, who live in Jerusalem, are killed in a café bombing. The novel is about the firestorm that erupts in the families when they learn that these bereaved Israeli children are going to be raised by gay men in the U.S.; about mourning a death from terror when one finds the cultural scripts offered by the “war on terror” toxic; and about the predicament of two gay men becoming immersed in the culture of parenting they have spent much of their lives making fun of.
This program is a part of the 25th Anniversary of the Gay and Lesbian Alumni (GALA) Celebration.
