Transgender youth are identifying themselves earlier and earlier, and yet they are some of the least represented within youth literature. Parents and youth alike need assistance figuring out how to take steps in their journey, and often they turn to the library for their primary resources. Join Cory Silverberg (author of the 2016 Stonewall Honor Book "Sex is a Funny Word") and authors Donna Gephart (Lily and Dunkin), Brie Spangler (Beast), and Meredith Russo (If I Was Your Girl) to learn about their newest works and ways to help transgender youth in your library.
