As part of the UW-Milwaukee’s English Department Creative Writing Program’s Visiting Writing Program’s Visiting Writer Series, LGBTQ+ Studies is a proud co-sponsor of a talk by author Lysley Tenorio.  The talk may be attended in-person or via Zoom, and takes place on October 28 at 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm in Curtin 175.

Lysley Tenorio is the gay Filipino author of Monstress and The Son of Good Fortune, and is a professor at Saint Mary’s College of California. His works explore the experiences of the Filipinx diaspora, particularly those of immigrants to the U.S.–including queer and trans Filipinx experiences. The Son of Good Fortune won the New American Voices Award, and Monstress was named a book of the year by the San Francisco Chronicle. Tenorio is currently a 2021-22 Radcliffe Fellow at Harvard University.
