Author Talk with Simon James Green

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?

I was born and raised in New York. I still live in New York but kind of sick of the city and one day I wish to move to the UK.I have a Masters degree in Library Science and I currently work in a special collections library. I loved books ever since I was a little girl. Through the hard times in my life, my love for books has always gotten me through. Just entering another world different from my own intrigues me. As long as I am entering in another universe, I like to create my own as well. I love to write and hopefully I will be able to complete a novel.
