James Lecesne, author of Trevor: A Novella and creator of The Trevor Project, hosted Queer in America, an event in which authors discussed how they’re making it better for LGBTQ youth on Monday, March 18th at the 92nd Street Y. The sold out event featuring Laurie Rubin (Do You Dream in Color?, Seven Stories Press), Amy Bloom (Come to Me, HarperCollins), Michael Cunningham (The Hours, Picador),Paul Rudnick (I Hate Hamlet), and Brian Selznick (The Invention of Hugo Cabret, Scholastic Press), was a complete success. James shared this picture with us (left to right are Jenny Taira, Laurie Rubin, James Lecesne, Paul Rudnick, and Brian Selznick):

On Thursday, March 7th, Laurie Rubin, author of Do You Dream in Color? Insights from a Girl without Sight, will be performing at Panida Theater in Sandpoint, Idaho, as part of the Pend Orielle Arts Council’s Performance Series. Laurie will also be speaking about her incredible memoir.
Rubin describes her past as a “journey towards identity,” one she hopes will resonate with young people struggling with two fundamental questions: “Who am I?” and “Where do I fit in?” Although most of us aren’t blind, Rubin believes that many of us have traits that make us something other than “normal.” These differences, like blindness, may seem like barriers but for the strong and the persistent, dreams can overcome barriers, no matter how large they may seem. This is what makes her story so unique yet universal and so important for young readers.
Come hear Laurie, internationally-acclaimed mezzo-soprano, sing and speak about her book!
