A little while ago i was lucky enough to interview Simon James Green, author of Noah Can’t Even and Noah Could Never, and also L. C.

I absolutely loved doing this interview and i hope you enjoy reading it!

LGBTQ+ Book Club Night 12 – George

We have officially had our book club running for a year! Our online version started earlier than this but this last one was our twelfth session!

The book was George by Alex Gino, a middle grade book about a transgender girl wanting to be seen as a girl by others too. Continue reading
