Bill's work in writing LGBTQIA+ stories have been read by millions but his new book, The Bridge, may be his most essential story yet. In this conversation, Bill and Adam discuss mental health, the implications of teenage suicide, and the intricacies of our brains. If you or someone you know is suffering from suicidal thoughts or tendencies, please dial 1-800-273-8255 to reach the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Thank you to Scholastic for helping bring this important conversation to light.
