CANCELLED: Growing Room Festival presents Alex Leslie

March 15 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Growing Room Festival presents Not Your Sidekick: Queer Characters, with panelists Alex Leslie, author of We All Need to Eat, Tanya Boteju, Tash McAdam, and Addie Tsai. Moderated by Jen Currin.

Queer identities aren’t plot devices for straight folks’ character development. Queer folks are  protagonists of their own individual stories, and they circumnavigate queer narrative and tone. Shining a light on the depths of queer identity in fiction while also remaining honest to their experiences, these writers refuse to let queerness take a backseat. Join us for an afternoon of queer expertise in an ever-growing genre with Tanya Boteju, Alex Leslie, Tash McAdam, and Addie Tsai.

Cost: Pay What You Can (recommended: $12.50). Register here.
ASL Interpretation Available by Request Before February 15, 2020.
