Jennifer Finney Boylan is the author of She’s Not There, the first bestselling book by a transgendered American. By turns hilarious and deeply moving, Boylan’s book examines the territory that lies between male and female, as she will do in her talk. A three-time guest of the Oprah Winfrey Show, Jenny has also appeared on Larry King Live, the Today Show, and been the subject of a documentary on CBS News’ 48 Hours. In March of 2007, she played herself on several episodes of ABC’s All My Children. Jennifer Boylan is Professor of English at Colby College in Maine, where she teaches American literature, cultural studies, and fiction writing.
