MN Reads: "Raising Ollie: How My Nonbinary Art-Nerd Kid Changed (Nearly) Everything I Know" by Tom Rademacher

"Imagine your child as a swarm of bees"

When Tom Rademacher's daughter Ollie was in second grade, a couple of things were readily apparent. Olllie was scary-smart, and a talented artist. Then seven-year-old Ollie let their parents know they were non-binary.

Tom Rademacher tells a touching, thought-provoking, and often hilarious tale of raising an extraordinary child, and how one year of change made their family even more fully themselves.
