An Evening with George M. Johnson, author of 'All Boys Aren't Blue'

Wednesday, April 3, 2024 at 6 PM
California State University, San Marcos
$0 to $10
Tickets must be purchased/obtained through Arts and Lectures' Eventbrite.

As George’s memoir "All Boys Aren’t Blue" has reached massive success as a New York Times bestseller, it has become the American Library Association’s third most challenged book of 2021. But with each shove, George continues to persevere and advocate for Black and queer voices. “Black storytelling has often been banned,” George says, “My book is a tool so that Black queer kids and LGBTQ teens can see themselves, and read about themselves, and learn about themselves.”

In this talk, George speaks on the importance of sharing diverse stories: why we should remain resilient, how representation in media can support young adults’ mental and physical health and what we can do to support these voices. By listening to one another and understanding the history, language and actions necessary to change the world, we can form a community where we are all free to be our true, authentic selves.

The author will be signing books shortly after the event.
