Alysia Abbott - Fairyland: A Memoir of My Father

Thursday, Jun 27, 2013 7:00p
Brookline Booksmith Brookline, MA

After his wife’s death in 1973, poet and activist Steve Abbott comes out of the closet and moves to San Francisco with his three-year-old daughter, Alysia. He throws himself into the vibrant poetry scene, trying to be a good father while being true to himself. After years of trial-and-error, life seems like it might be perfect... until the AIDS crisis hits. In this memoir, Alysia has written a moving legacy of both 1970’s and 80’s San Francisco and most importantly, her father.
