A Letter To Harvey Milk

San Francisco 1986. What can Harry, an older Eastern European Jewish refugee, learn from Barbara, his young, Jewish, lesbian writing teacher? What can she learn from him? When Harry fulfills a writing assignment to compose a letter to someone from his past who’s dead, he writes not to his late wife, Frannie, but to Harvey Milk, the martyred gay politician. Barbara is stunned. Harry’s letter evokes life-changing revelations that neither could have been foreseen. A Letter To Harvey Milk deals with friendship, loss, the grip of the past, and hard-won acceptance set in motion by unexpected people.
