Back in the dark ages before the iPhone and Twitter, a novelist named JT Leroy captured the attention of readers and celebrities with novels that were supposedly based on his experience as a homeless transgender teen. Several years later, JT Leroy was revealed to be the pen name of a writer named Laura Albert. People were outraged. Tonight, Rebecca Brown, Sean Beaudoin, and Nicole Hardy will read Albert/Leroy’s work, and A&P editor Christopher Frizzelle will interview Albert onstage.
