A writer and actor, Aaron Hartzler’s autobiographical performances have been seen in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York where he received a GLAAD Media Award nomination for Outstanding Off-Off Broadway Performance. Now he translates his story from the stage to the page in Rapture Practice, a memoir of his childhood and teen years, growing up in a fundamentalist Christian household, where everyone else is waiting for the rapture, but Aaron’s more interested in experiencing his first kiss, starring in the school play, and indulging in other rebellious teen fantasies. Rapture Practice is a funny and kind-hearted portrait of adolescence that will be recognizable to anyone with a free spirit.
