The account of one radically new school year for a Teacher of the Year and for his nonbinary, art-obsessed, brilliant childTom Rademacher will be at 826 MSP on Tuesday, October 12 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. for an open house launch event for his new book, Raising Ollie: How My Nonbinary Art-Nerd Kid Changed (Nearly) Everything I Know. This will be a free, ticketed event—please check back for registration information.

Raising Ollie is Tom Rademacher’s story of one eventful and sometimes painful school year, parenting his nonbinary, art-obsessed, brilliant child and relearning every day what it means to be a father and teacher. Rademacher reveals how raising a kid changes everything—and how much raising a kid like Ollie can teach us about who we are and what we’re doing in the world. 

"As vulnerable and honest a piece I’ve ever read from an educator, Tom Rademacher’s beautiful and conversational story ought to encourage more of us to dig deeper and reflect harder." —José Luis Vilson, educator, father, executive director of EduColor, and author of This Is Not A Test: A New Narrative on Race, Class, and Education

"A fine introduction to nonbinary gender identity, courtesy of a child and their supportive parents." —Kirkus Reviews
