Lori Horvitz, who grew up ashamed of her Jewish roots, confused about her sexuality, and unable to join what she calls the “happy blonde families,” became a “hippie chick” who traveled the world in search of she knew not what.
She shares her book “The Girls of Usually” — which chronicles each trip, romance and experiment in re-inventing herself that drew her closer to discovering the path to escape deep-rooted patterns and accept her cultural, ethnic and sexual identity — at 4 p.m. Sunday, May 31, at Village Books, 1200 11th St.
Horvitz is a professor of literature and language at University of North Carolina at Asheville, where she also directs the Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies Program. More on the author: lorihorvitz.com.
