Join us as Emily Pittman Newberry reads from and discusses her new book of poetry about the experiences of one transsexual woman and her transition from pretending to be the "steady freddy" guy everyone thought they knew to the liberated woman, Emily. "Butterfly A Rose: A Journey Through Transition" does not contain easy answers. It is a view inside her world that may surprise you with resonances to your own life.

Emily Pittman Newberry was born in the mid-west during World War II and grew up in upstate New York during the post war boom and subsequent questioning of consumer culture and the spiritual and political upheavals. She went into the factories as a machinist to participate in political revolution and came out 30 years later as a mediator and facilitator.

After a long spiritual journey of inner truth seeking she came into acceptance of herself as a transgendered woman. She is currently writing, speaking and teaching ways of living peacefully with each other. She has two wonderful sons living on opposite ends of the country.
