Barney Frank

comment
Barney Frank will most likely be remembered as one of the most courageous figures in American public service. What was simply and purely a fact of his inner life he bravely chose to quit concealing: He came out as a gay man in the late '80s, the first member of Congress to do such a thing. Out and pretty damn loud, the representative from Massachusetts remained unabashedly liberal throughout his 32 years in office. The trailblazer with the tousled hair also just published a candid new memoir, Frank, which he discusses tonight.

7 p.m. Fri., Apr. 10. St. Louis County Library Headquarters (1640 South Lindbergh Boulevard, Frontenac; 314-994-3300 or www.slcl.org). $27 to $32..
Fri., April 10, 7 p.m., 2015
