In the 1970s, poet Lynette Reini fell in love with a fascinating, talented man named Steve Grandell. They married in 1983; five years later, Grandell came out to her as transgender. Through the following decades, as her spouse developed a public persona as Venus de Mars and fronted the band All the Pretty Horses, the couple struggled to stay together. They navigated an often hostile, anti-trans environment; fractures grew between them as de Mars pushed the band toward success. Through hard work and love, the couple invented a way of being themselves.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase and light refreshments will be provided. To learn more about the author and musician, visit https://www.reini-grandell.com/ and https://atphband.com/.
