Professor Michelson to Share New Book on LGBT Rights, Launching National Tour

Professor of Political Science Melissa R. Michelson will embark on an intense book tour this spring to introduce her new book, Listen, We Need to Talk, How to Change Attitudes About LGBT Rights, co-authored with Brian F. Harrison, PhD. She will travel to 33 colleges, universities and bookstores discussing her finding that people will often change their attitudes about LGBT rights when they find that people with whom they share an identity are supporters of those rights.

Michelson will hold a book launch party Feb.7 in the Great Room of the Russell Center, at 7pm. Dr. Andrew Flores from Mills College will join Michelson to discuss the book. The book launch is open to the public.
