Interview with author Gene Gant

| E:30

In our 30th episode, Adam talks with author Gene Gant, a strong advocate for #WeNeedDiverseBooks, especially those that feature LGBT characters. Gant's latest book, Bender, was realized in June and he's also an author of young adult literature including Lucky Linus. He and Adam discuss his writing process, the importance of diverse characters, and his experience with libraries growing up.

June was Pride Month for the LGBT community but these are books that should be available to patrons year round. Given the sensitive nature of the topics, providing these titles via OverDrive gives patrons an extra level of privacy when they check them out.
