"Finding My Place: One Man's Journey From Cleveland to Boston and Beyond"
Judah Leblang is a Boston-based writer, teacher, and storyteller. His essays and commentaries have been broadcast on almost 200 NPR and ABC radio-network stations around the US. He is the author of a memoir, "Finding My Place: One Man's Journey from Cleveland to Boston and Beyond," and the writer/performer of "One Man's Journey through the Middle Ages," a performance piece based on his book, which he performed at Gay Games 9 in Cleveland in summer 2014, and at venues in Boston, Tampa, Toronto, and New York City.
“Finding My Place sees the author in wearing a 'WWJD' cap around Jacksonville, Florida (assuming it was the moniker of a local radio station) to an unfortunate car accident on the first day of kindergarten, to trying to fill out a muscle T-shirt at age 51 in the gay mecca of Provincetown, Massachusetts, Judah Leblang's journey of discovery blends comedy and drama. In this episodic memoir, the author sketches the world he comes from--a world of poppyseed kuchen, Indians baseball, and the great industrial city of Cleveland, Ohio, which seemed to be imploding in the 1960's and '70's-and the world he inhabits today, as a hard of hearing man with a funny name, navigating middle age.
