Join us as we celebrate people of courage in East Tennessee! This year we will honor Rick Fox and Ralph Cianelli with the Julia Tucker Award and hear an inspiring keynote from Jordan Nasser.
Jordan Nasser left his dream job behind and took the opportunity to re-examine his life—an experience he highly recommends if you ever have the chance. A graduate of Farragut High School and the University of Tennessee, he was raised in Knoxville before moving to New York City. He currently lives in Stockholm, Sweden.
In his debut novel, Home Is a Fire, he drew upon his experiences growing up in the South. Quirky characters, outstanding reviews and a mention in the New York Times placed the book on the Amazon top ten rated LGBT fiction list. The story continued in The Fire Went Wild and This Fire Inside.
The three novels have been reedited with new material and will be released together in spring 2019 as Home is a Fire: Books 1-3.
