Join us for a Zoom discussion with award-winning author and historian Eric Cervini on Wednesday, December 7 at 7 PM. Cervini will be discussing his painstakingly researched and engagingly written book “The Deviant’s War: The Homosexual vs. the United States of America.”
A New York Times bestseller and a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, “The Deviant's War” uncovers the secret history of the fight for gay rights that began a generation before Stonewall, told through the life and unprecedented legal efforts of astronomer Franklin Edward Kameny.
Cervini is an award-winning historian of LGBTQ+ culture and politics. He graduated summa cum laude from Harvard College and received his Ph.D. in history from the University of Cambridge, where he was a Gates Scholar. “The Deviant’s War” is his first book.
