Raised in an ultra-Orthodox Jewish family with every aspect of her life dictated by ancient rules, Mimi Lemay’s role as a woman seemed preordained from cradle to grave. “What We Will Become: A Mother, a Son, and a Journey of Transformation” is Lemay’s heartfelt memoir of her transgender child’s odyssey, and her own journey outside the boundaries of the faith and culture that shaped her life.

Dual narratives of faith and motherhood weave together to form a heartfelt portrait of an unforgettable family. Brimming with love and courage, ”What We Will Become” is a powerful testament to how painful events from the past can be redeemed to give us hope for the future.

Co-sponsored with Vilna Shul, Boston’s Center for Jewish Culture, and in conversation with Alison Rosalie Brookes, MD.
