Reading With Pride

June 30 @ 9:45 am - 10:45 am

As many of us know, bans and challenges on LGBTQ+ books are on the rise–Missouri currently ranks third in the country for highest number of book challenges in schools and libraries. Megan McCarthy and Courtnie Scott-Cammarata, our Youth Education co-directors, will talk about what we can do as citizens to curtail this horrible trend, and, as readers, why it is important for everyone to read and support books featuring LGBTQ+ characters and/or themes, no matter who you are. Megan and Courtnie will offer some ideas for great LGBTQ+ fiction and non-fiction reads for kids, teens, and adults. Bookworms are encouraged to bring their suggestions as well (and actual books if you want to swap)!
