Des Moines Psychiatrist Loren Olson will read from his powerful exploration of human sexuality, Finally Out: Letting Go of Living Straight. Finally Out explores the sexuality of mature men who, like Dr. Olson, lived a large part of their lives as married straight men.
“Less a handbook for coming out late in life than one man's story of doing so, Olson's always-compassionate voice asserts the importance of being true to oneself.” —Publishers Weekly
