Montana author and attorney, Roberta Zenker, will be appearing next week at In Other Words Feminist Center to share her story and read from her newly released memoir, TransMontana, A Memoir of Transformation in Body, Mind & Spirit.

TRANSMONTANA is the story of Montana hunter and county attorney, Robert Zenker’s transition from a male, popularly elected Montana public official to a modern, professional woman.

Robert Zenker was a married man and father of two, boxed in the psychologically complicated, emotionally taut web of secrecy, shame, fear, doubt and ambiguity of self of a transsexual deeply in denial. Roberta inhabited that body and all the accoutrement of the life of a man in Montana for nearly fifty years before her transition from man to woman in 2007.

The remarkable story of her emerging from her box is a complex, courageous and sometimes dangerous journey involving not only physical transition, but also alcohol recovery and the result of both – a spiritual transformation.

Ms. Zenker will be signing her book at In Other Words Feminist Center, 14 NE Killingsworth St. in Portland, Oregon. For Details call (503) 232-6003 or email [email protected] or [email protected]
