March 14, 4PM Paley Library Lecture Hall This year’s One Book, One Philadelphia selection, Sherman Alexie’s War Dances, is a collection of short stories and poems that examine the intricate facets of human relationships. Alexie weaves issues of personal identity throughout this book, many of them focusing on his experiences as a Native American in the Northwest. The Senator’s Son, one of the most moving tales in the book, however, touches on sexual identity. Through the lens of this story, panelists Mary Catherine Roper of the ACLU, Allison Buehler of the Mazzoni Center, and Gloria Casarez of City Hall’s LGBT Affairs Office discuss issues facing the queer community today.
