Summer Spotlight Series: Wayne Maines – Tuesday, July 19, 7 PM

Posted by Michael Gorzka on July 13th, 2016

Becoming NicoleWhen Wayne and Kelly Maines adopted identical twin boys, they thought their lives were complete.

But it wasn’t long before they noticed a marked difference between Jonas and his brother, Wyatt.

“Becoming Nicole” is the inspiring true story of a transgender girl, her identical twin brother, and an ordinary American family’s extraordinary journey to understand, nurture, and celebrate the uniqueness in us all.

Free refreshments will be provided and Gulf of Maine will have copies of the author’s books for sale.

“When it comes to that physical self, for a transgender person every waking moment, every conscious breath, is a denial of who they truly are.”
— Amy Ellis Nutt, Becoming Nicole: The Transformation of an American Family
