Description

CAN A SECRET FROM HISTORY CHANGE THE WORLD?

Join Author Lee Wind as he discusses his debut teen novel, Queer as a Five-Dollar Bill, that explores that very question. To fix his life, bullied and closeted fifteen-year-old Wyatt goes public with historical evidence that Abraham Lincoln was in love with another guy—triggering a backlash and media firestorm that might destroy everything he cares about.
This free event will include a talk, reading, Q&A, and book signing. Copies of the novel will be available to purchase and/or donate to LGBTQ and Allied teens.


The reviews are glowing:
“The premise is a real hook.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Insightful… valuable… Fascinating information about Lincoln and Speed is also bound to spark curiosity.” —Foreword Reviews
Wind’s engaging, utterly enjoyable tale of teen self-discovery is riveting . . . A resonant and admirably crafted work.” —The Book Life Prize
