Meet Marc Solomon, National Campaign Director of Freedom To Marry and former executive director of MassEquality. He'll be speaking about his new book, Winning Marriage, an account of the campaign to win and protect the freedom to marry in the United States.
In our third Author Salon on Tuesday, November 11 at 6:30pm, learn more about the history of marriage equality from one of the most prominent figures in the movement. You can check out the BoConcept furniture and try drinks from Deep Eddy and Hint Water. Once Marc gives a talk about his book he'll be sticking around to sign them for anyone who purchases it in advance (you can do that once you buy a ticket) or when you arrive that night.
Plus, when you get your ticket for the Author Salon you'll also get a ticket to a private screening of The Imitation Game, the new film about Alan Turing (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) on November 18.
