THE BOLD WORLD A Memoir of Family and Transformation

by | Read by Jodie Patterson

Biography & Memoir • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Author-narrator Jodie Patterson, who is a social activist and entrepreneur, shares her relatable struggle to find a harmonious balance of self, family life, and career. Her conversational style engages listeners with her account of her formative New York City childhood and undergraduate years at Spelman College. Patterson's love and respect for her family are at the heart of her expansive and thoughtful ruminations on the personal courage required to live authentically in a world with divisive attitudes toward identity, particularly race and gender. Her desire to foster positive change for all children, including her transgender son, manifests in her advocacy for LGTBQI rights and educational opportunities for underserved youth. The author's candor about her imperfections and challenges offers inspiration for anyone awaiting personal perfection before working to to make a difference.
