GLBT Book Month
June is GLBT Book Month™
Celebrate GLBT Book Month™ in your Community
Celebrate GLBT Book Month this June with a new bookmark and poster, now available from ALA Graphics! Featuring vibrant art from This Day in June by Gayle E. Pitman and illustrated by Kristyna Litten, this new poster and bookmark commemorates June as GLBT Book Month. This Day in June is the winner of the 2015 Stonewall Book Award for Children’s and Young Adult Literature and a Top Ten Rainbow List Title. It invites readers to a pride celebration with text in rhyming couplets, energetic images, and a reading guide for parents and caregivers on how to talk to children about sexual orientation and gender identity in age-appropriate ways.
