Leah Lax will talk about her journey from her book Uncovered, the only gay memoir ever to come out of the hasidic community. Leah was born and raised in Texas in a family clustered around immigrant Jewish grandparents. She joined the hasidim at fifteen thinking she could reclaim all her family had lost before she was born. Uncovered becomes the story of a mother of seven who finds the courage to say no and set out on her own path.
Leah Lax has published her work in many places and won numerous awards. She has also written for several Grammy Award-winning artists, and her work for stage has been featured by Houston Grand Opera and the Houston Symphony. Leah holds an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Houston.
