  • About

    The National Writers Series is pleased to welcome Chasten Buttigieg who will discuss his uplifting memoir, I Have Something to Tell You. Over the past several years, Buttigieg has emerged on the national stage, having left his classroom to campaign for his husband, current US Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. In his book, Chasten Buttigieg recounts his journey to finding acceptance and self-love. He recalls his upbringing in a rural, conservative region, where he felt different from his peers, father, and brothers. He tells the story of his coming out and how he’s healed from the painful responses and isolation. And with unflinching honesty, unflappable courage, and great warmth, Chasten Buttigieg relays his experience of growing up in America and embracing his true self, while inspiring young people across the nation to do the same.
