Author Discussion with Chasten Buttigieg: I Have Something to Tell You
October 6, 2020 @ 5:00 pm| Free
Join us for a live, interactive conversation with Chasten Buttigieg, as he discusses his new book, “I Have Something to Tell You: A Memoir.”
Throughout the past year, teacher Chasten Glezman Buttigieg has emerged on the national stage, having left his classroom in South Bend, Indiana, to travel cross-country in support of his husband, former mayor Pete Buttigieg, and Pete’s groundbreaking presidential campaign. Through Chasten’s joyful, witty social media posts, the public gained a behind-the-scenes look at his life with Pete on the trail—moments that might have ranged from the mundane to the surprising, but that were always heartfelt.
Chasten has overcome a multitude of obstacles to get here. In this moving, uplifting memoir, he recounts his journey to finding acceptance as a gay man. With unflinching honesty, unflappable courage, and great warmth, Chasten Buttigieg relays his experience of growing up in America and embracing his true self, while inspiring others to do the same.
Chasten Glezman Buttigieg worked as a middle school drama and humanities teacher before joining his husband Pete on the 2020 Presidential campaign trail and has built a name of his own as an advocate for teachers, inclusion and the arts. He was born and raised in Traverse City, Michigan and received his bachelor’s degree in theater and global studies from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and his Master’s in education from DePaul University. Chasten currently lives in South Bend, Indiana, with Peter and their two rescue dogs. He will be in conversation with Fay Jacobs, an accomplished author with a 35-year career in journalism, public relations and theater. Ms. Jacobs lives in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware with her wife Bonnie and miniature schnauzer, Windsor.
Online program from the Lewes Public Library, Browseabout Books, and CAMP Rehoboth with support from Delmarva Public Media.
