    Julia Kaye in Conversation With Shena Wolf

    My Life in Transition is a story that’s not often told about trans lives: what happens beyond the early days of transition. After the nerve-wracking, anxiety-ridden early transition period has ended and the hormones have done their thing, this book shows how you can be trans and simply exist in society. You can be trans and have a successful future. You can be trans and have a normal life full of ups and downs. In our current political and social climate, this hopeful, accessible narrative about trans lives is both entertaining and vital. Kaye will be joined in conversation with Shena Wolf, director of comics and acquisitions at Andrews McMeel Syndication.
