      This event is part of Inside and Out Pride 2020 series, which offers solace and affirmation to the LGBTQ+ community during a time of isolation from trusted social groups and support networks. 

      What happens when the places or people we consider safe prove otherwise? Recent middle-grade books by Brandy Colbert and L.C. Rosen dive into the confusion and angst young teens face when pressured to change themselves in the pursuit of love or friendship Colbert’s The Only Black Girls in Town explores how two girls living in a predominantly white small town experience their blackness in similar and different ways. Rosen’s Camp, set at a summer camp for queer teens, is a coming-of-age story about one teenage boy’s willingness to hide his true self to get noticed by the boy of his dreams.
