Author of transgender book for kids will visit Wichita


The author of a book about a transgender child that is at the center of a debate in local school libraries will visit Wichita next month.

Alex Gino, whose novel, “George,” is a nominee for this year’s William Allen White Children’s Book Award, announced on their website Wednesday that they would appear at Wichita State University on Nov. 2.

Gino’s visit is being co-sponsored by the WSU Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the Wichita chapter of GLSEN, an organization that advocates on behalf of LGBTQ students.

“We are super excited to be bringing Alex Gino to Wichita,” said Liz Hamor, co-founder of the GLSEN chapter.
