Let’s celebrate PRIDE together with an amazing virtual author talk! Join me on Friday, June 16 at 3 PM, where I will be in discussion with award-winning author, Simon James Green! We’ll talk about his great writing career and also go more in detail about his YA LGBTQ novel making it’s US debut, Gay Club! !
Gay Club! Synopsis:
Barney’s a shoo-in for his school’s LGBTQ+ Society President at the club’s next election. But when the vote is opened up to the entire student body, the whole school starts paying attention. How low will the candidates go to win? Buckle up for some serious shade, scandals and sleazy shenanigans. It isn’t long before it’s National Coming Out Day – for everyone’s secrets!
But when the group faces an unexpected threat – and a big opportunity – can the club members put politics aside and stand united?
