Because of environment we are currently in after the 2016 presidential election, and the threats to freedom, openness, and the progress this has brought to all people (but LGBTQ people in particular), Rainbow Book Fair has decided to have a theme for the 2017 fair:
“Books and the Courage to Go On”
We would like to explore these ideas and issues at our 2017 fair —
- What is keeping you going on in the current political climate?
- How we can identify and sustain books as a source of change, strength, solace, and personal intimacy?
- What books continue to change your life and give you the strength to survive adversity and stress?
- What new voices do you see in this Age of Uncertainty? How can we discover them and allow them to bloom?
- What older voices give us the time-tested experience to put even bad changes into perspective?
Rainbow Book Fair would love your input. You can send us your ideas and thoughts about planning for our annual event in 2017 to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
