The Letter Q Giveaway

The Letter Q.jpg

In the new anthology The Letter Q: Queer Writers' Notes to Their Younger Selves, dozens of award winning authors and illustrators, including Michael Cunningham, Terrence McNally and Armisted Maupin, tell their younger selves what they would have liked to know then. GO magazine says "sure, there are heavy subjects here, but the overall tone is funny and upbeat. By writing letters to their younger selves, the authors are forced to give detailed accounts of their former lives, making it easier for a teen to envision what that author went through. So give this book to your favorite queer kid or keep it for yourself - because sometimes life is hard for gay adults, even though, at this point, it is all supposed to get better."
