Jon Derek Croteau discusses his new book My Thinning Years: Starving the Gay Within on at 6pm on Thursday, September 4th.
“My Thinning Years is an emotional journey through Jon Derek Croteau’s struggle with eating disorders and accepting his identity as a gay man. In his struggle to accept his sexuality, Croteau attempts to erase his pain through trying to erase himself. This is an honest, powerful and raw insight into the self-punishing, self-harming and consuming force of eating disorders.”
—Grace Bowman, author of Thin
