Gail Lehr & Bell Bottom Blues

Monday, September 25 at 3:30 in Bartlett 1017

Gail Lehr on coming of age in the 1970s.

Gail Lehr worked for many years as the Office Manager in the Department of Languages & Literatures and in the Department of English. But prior to starting her career, she had been a girl growing up in Janesville in the 1970s during a tumultuous era when youth culture had disrupted conventions and redefined what growing up meant. It was an exciting and confusing time, and Lehr captures it by documenting her 14th summer, a time when she was still a girl but experiencing all the complexities of adult life.

Join us for a presentation from her memoir, Bell Bottom Blues.
