ReadOut 2023: Middle Grade and Young Adult Literature Panel

February 17 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

ReadOut 2023

ReadOut 2023 and the LGBTQ Resource Center of the Gulfport Library presents authors Rob Sanders and Sarah Prager in conversation about LGBTQ literature for middle grade and young adult readers. Rob Sanders has written 17 funny and fierce books and is recognized as a pioneer in LGBTQIA+ nonfiction picture books. Blook Brothers, released in July 2022, is his first middle-grade novel, written in powerful, raw verse. Sarah Prager is dedicated to raising awareness of LGBTQ+ history through writing, speaking, and her app, Quist, which brings LGBTQ history to life for more than 35, 000 followers. Her second book, Rainbow Revolutionaries: 50 LGBTQ+ People Who Made History is an official selection of the Junior Library Guild.

Funding is provided in part through a Florida Humanities Book Festival Grant with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with the Gulfport Library.
