Three years ago Chasten Buttigieg had his first book published - a memoir about navigating the challenges of being young and gay in a small Midwestern town.  

He also shares how his life was transformed from being a middle school teacher in Traverse City, Michigan to becoming a key member of a groundbreaking and historical presidential campaign with his husband, Pete Buttigieg, the US Secretary of Transportation.   

This year Chasten Buttigieg released a new version of his memoir for young readers. He spoke with The Full Story host, Tom Kuser about, “I Have Something to Tell You - For Young Adults."
