Virginia Black Appearing at ReadOut 2024 in Gulfport, FL!

Excited to head back to Gulfport, FL for ReadOut 2024! Last year, I made the trip on the recommendation of Elle E. Ire, who had nothing but wonderful things to say about the folks at the LGBTQ Resource Center in the Gulfport Public Library.

With book bans rising in alarmingly high numbers, it’s great to hear about a public library offering such an island of support, and a program that hosts such an inclusive event.

Come find me wherever the author tables happen to be, and be sure to say hello!
