About Kevin Gladish
Kevin is thrilled to be part of the Monday Speaker Series. Kevin has performed as a live storyteller in Chicago at several venues over the years, including on the Steppenwolf stage and in The Moth, where he participated in the Grand Slam. He's written for a number of adoption-related platforms, most recently for Portrait of an Adoption, and was featured on the Bloods Call Podcast. Shortly after Kevin discovered his adoption by asking for his newly-released Ohio birth certificate in 2015, he began writing a blog called A Story With No Beginning which documented his discovery, his search for birth family, and his struggle with his new identity as it all happened. The blog was recently adapted into a solo performance piece which Kevin debuted at the Virtual Filet of Solo with Lifeline Theater in Chicago this year. The show is called A Secret in Plain Sight.
