Clay Aiken will perform at T. Cooper book event-attachment0

Malaprop’s Bookstore/Cafe made this announcement today: “American Idol pop star Clay Aiken will appear at Malaprop’s to sing a song in tribute to our author T. Cooper, who will be presenting his memoir, Real Man Adventures about his female to male transition. 7 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 19.”

Real Man Adventures was published by McSweeney’s. About the book: “Real Man Adventures is Cooper’s brash, wildly inventive, and often comic exploration of the paradoxes and pleasures of masculinity. He takes us through his transition into identifying as male, and how he went on to marry his wife and become an adoring stepfather of two children. Alternately bemused and exasperated when he feels compelled to explain all this, Cooper never loses his sense of humor.”
