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

Sybil Lamb and Casey Plett are coming to your town. This isn’t just a book tour, it’s a movement. And these are events you won’t easily forget.

Help us fuel our authors, and their car

Buy a copy of our tour zine, featuring a selection of the latest trans writing, and help fund this groundbreaking tour! Pay whatever you feel comfortable with. All proceeds go directly towards gas, food, accommodation and those 252 cups of coffee.
