National Coming Out Day Poetry Reading and Performance

National Coming Out Day is observed annually to celebrate coming out as an LGBTQ+ or ally, and to raise awareness of the LGBTQ+ community and civil rights movement. 

Our stories can be powerful to each other. Come celebrate the journey of coming out by witnessing local poets, writers, and artists perform pieces about their own journeys and identities.

This event is part of AADL's 2019 National Coming Out Day events.

Author Event | Lara Zielin: Author Your Life

As a published young-adult and romance author, Lara Zielin was always asking what her characters wanted and what would make them happy. Her life changed forever when she began to ask those same questions about herself. 

At the start of 2018, Lara began a book she unimaginatively titled Lara’s Life to test whether writing about the life she wanted to have could actually help it come to pass.
