WHERE WE'RE GOING WE DON'T NEED ROADS

Host an event at your organization, school, or even your home.

Bring the book tour to your town this fall and bring the community together for a special event.

Where we’re going, we don’t need roads

Sybil Lamb, Casey Plett, and Kelli Dunham want to come to your town, but we need your help to make it happen. Become a local host and bring more great trans and queer literature to your home town!

These three writers are road-tripping in September and October so that they can share a stage with local writers across the US and Canada. You can sign-up to host them as part of nearly any kind of event--a conference, a cafe open mic, a bookstore reading, or a LGBT youth group are just some of the examples of events they could be a part of.

Almost anyone can be an event host. If you'd like to put together an event with Sybil, Casey, and Kelli, Topside wants to help you make that happen. Hosts organize a venue, provide housing for the night, and promote the event to their local communities. The venue could be a cafe, art gallery, or even your living room!
