Little, Brown Books for Young Readers invites you to participate in our #LBYRPrideChat to celebrate Reading with Pride during Pride Month on Tuesday, June 4 at 8 pm EST.

June was chosen for LGBTQ+ Pride Month to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which occurred at the end of June in 1969. That means that 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots. We’ve come a long way since then, but there is still work to be done.

Please join us as we celebrate authors, illustrators, and books that make a difference every day by lifting the voices of the LGBTQ+ community.
