Tom Ryan, author of When You Get the Chance ARC, will be signing in the Canadian Manda Group booth #312/314 on Friday at 10:00 AM. Following cousins on a road trip to Pride as they dive into family secrets and friendships, When You Get the Chance is a contemporary YA novel, perfect for fans of David Levithan and Becky Albertalli, and for readers looking for a story of friendship and family.
Between them, Robin Stevenson and Tom Ryan have written LGBTQ-inclusive books for kids of all ages. They will discuss the history and importance of LGBTQ representation in books for young readers, libraries as safe spaces, queer inclusivity in collection development, and using events like Pride as programming opportunities.
