Disrupting Literary Hegemony: Trans and Nonbinary Author Spotlight
The transformative power of literature is undeniable. Books can provide a lifeline or a place of sacred refuge. Yet not all children can readily see themselves reflected in what they read. In a 2017 interview with Literary Hub, Alex Gino, author of 2015’s "George," said: “I wonder who I would be now if I had been able to see some reflection of myself when I was younger.”

Children’s literature has begun to spotlight more trans and nonbinary voices, but there are so many other stories that deserve to be heard.

In this one hour Zoom panel, these trans and nonbinary authors will discuss their work, their creative process, representation in literature, and the repercussions of J.K. Rowling’s recent transphobic tirades on social media.
