The New York Rainbow Book Fair is America’s oldest LGBT book fair and the largest LGBT book event in the country. On April 18, I'll not only be reading from "Water Music" but teasing my second novel, "The Penalty for Holding" as well. Around me, Manhattan's Holiday Inn Midtown will be teeming with more than 1,500 book lovers of all ages, gender identities and walks of life. According to the Rainbow Book Fair, most people who identify as part of the LGBT family have a book that they say has changed their lives, and this fair will feature works from the serious to the wild, from the zany to the super hot. So join me to meet and mingle with more than 100 publishers, writers, poets, editors and booksellers, and even snatch up book discounts and giveaways. See you in the city!
