Invisible Boy: A Memoir of Self-Discovery is an unforgettable coming-of-age memoir about a Black boy adopted into a white, Christian fundamentalist family. As an adopted and home-schooled Black boy with ADHD at white fundamentalist Christian churches and tent revivals, Mooney was raised amid a swirl of conflicting and confusing messages and beliefs. Within that radical and racist right-wing bubble along the U.S. border in Canada's Bible Belt, Harrison was desperate to belong and to be "visible" to those around him.
Harrison Mooney is an award-winning writer and journalist from Vancouver. Prior to penning his debut memoir, Harrison worked for The Vancouver Sun for nearly a decade as a reporter, editor and columnist. His writing has also appeared in the National Post, Yahoo, The Guardian, and Macleans. He lives in East Vancouver with his family.
Mooney will be in conversation with Sarah Berman. Berman is an investigative journalist covering crime, politics and culture. Her first book Don't Call It a Cult: The Shocking Story of Keith Raniere and the Women of NXIVM has been nominated for a Kobo Emerging Writer Prize and a Crime Writers of Canada Award of Excellence. She is credited as a writer and producer on the CBC podcast Pressure Cooker. Berman is a former senior editor at VICE and past contributor to Reuters, the Globe and Mail, Maclean's, and many more publications.
