A Book That
Changed My Life

A Literacy Works Celebration

Join us on October 7, 2021 at 8:30 PM CST for A Book That Changed My Life, a celebration of LGBTQIA+ storytellers and the books that helped to shape them. 

This year, we are thrilled that this event will be hosted by Tony Sarabia. Attendees of past events will be well aware of Tony's wit, charisma, and compassion, and we are thrilled that he is returning this year!

Alongside Tony, this event will feature a diverse group of speakers from across the LGBTQIA+ spectrum. With the unique experiences and styles that each of our speakers offer, we can guarantee that the event will be filled with laughter, tears, and amazing stories.


We look forward to announcing our speakers and launching ticket sales soon, so stay tuned!
