Main Description
Poetry. LGBT Studies. ENCOUNTERS WITH AUTHORS is a memoir of three extraordinary Canadians, remembered with affection, insight and wit: Scott Symons, award-winning journalist who exchanged a privileged background for a life in exile as scandalous as his revolutionary fiction; Robin Hardy, who abandoned a promising future as an attorney to advocate for the emerging gay movement, defying the "ticking time bomb" in his veins to challenge the orthodoxies of the AIDS era; and Norman Elder, a explorer, painter, poet and Olympian, whose multifaceted career was cut short by a law deemed obsolete for a quarter of a century.
