Being an LGBTQ child or teenager can be very tough. And many parents aren’t sure of how to provide adequate support and assistance in navigating the world. Author and Michigan State University professor Telaina Eriksen faces the challenge head-on in her book Unconditional: A Guide to Loving and Supporting Your LGBTQ Child, covering a variety of topics, including bullying, the coming-out process, providing support, communication strategies, finding LGBTQ-inclusive communities, and advocacy. Come meet Eriksen at a special reading and discussion at Gathering Volumes Bookstore, and pick up her empathetic guide to supportive parenting. 2-4pm. Saturday, January 20.
