About this event

Scholastic Celebrates Pride Month with award-winning author of Melissa, Alex Gino. In this live event, learners will have the opportunity to meet Alex and learn about their newest novel Alice Austen Lived Here, a tale about queerness in the past, present, and future. This timely story comes as society is reexamining our historical narratives and who we choose to memorialize. 


You won’t want to miss this opportunity to discuss the joy and complexities of writing middle-grade novels.


In partnership with Microsoft's LGBTQIA+ Employee Resource Group, GLEAM (Global LGBTQIA+ Employees and Allies at Microsoft.
