SIBA Panel Discussion: A Conversation on Supporting Trans/Nonbinary Staff
A Conversation on Supporting Trans/Nonbinary Staff & Community
May 18th at 12 PM CT on Zoom
Open to booksellers from regionals across the country.
In response to the alarming rise of anti-LGBTQ legislation, book bans, and attempts to repress LGBTQ free expression, SIBA is hosting a panel for booksellers on supporting trans and nonbinary staff and community. The event is open to all booksellers who are members of their regional bookselling associations.
Topics will include store and customer responses to local/state anti-trans legislation, best practices to address needs of trans/nonbinary staff, and community outreach and support.
Booksellers can submit topics or questions to the panel anonymously
Candice Huber, owner of Tubby & Coo’s Mid-City Book Shop in New Orleans, LA and SIBA’s Member Relations Coordinator, will moderate the discussion, which includes Libertie Valance, a founding member and co-owner of Firestorm Books in Asheville, NC and E. R. Anderson, Executive Director of Charis Circle, the 501c3 non-profit programming arm of Charis Books in Decatur, GA.
