A Room of One’s Own is thrilled to welcome Carla Ernst, author of “Life Without Pockets: My Long Journey into Womanhood!”
“Life Without Pockets—My Long Journey into Womanhood” is a compelling story chronicling local author Carla Ernst’s journey from male to female. An intensely personal story, the book not only helps audiences better understand the challenges and joys of gender identity, but more importantly, how to live an authentic life based not on marginalization by others, but on the continuing revelation and brave embrace of who we indeed are.

She leads CarlaAnne Communications and is the founder of The Writers’ Block, a consortium of some of America’s most accomplished writers and editors. Carla attended the University of Kansas, where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Journalism. She worked in radio as a producer for CBS’s WBBM and at NPR where she produced profile pieces on many musicians, artists, and writers.
