CHARLOTTE — Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) will bring Charlotte author James Green to its Sept. 13 meeting at 7 p.m. at Christ Episcopal Church, 1412 Providence Rd.

Green, a psychotherapist, will discuss spirituality of same-sex relationships, with reference to “Northern Lights,” the historical novel he has penned which was released recently.

The book takes place during the French and Indian War, circa 1760.

Green said, “The northern lights are symbolic of the beauty found in same-sex relationships. The northern lights remind me, as a gay man, that our relationships have the potential to be awe-inspiring.”
