Pansy Boy with Busboys and Poets Books
Takoma | Nicolás Guillén Room | April 3, 2018 | 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Please join Busboys and Poets Books and The Pansy Project as we welcome artist and writer Paul Harfleet to introduce and read from his first book Pansy Boy, a picture book he wrote and illustrated. Rhyming couplets tell the story of a boy who revels in the joys of summer, exploring the flora and fauna around him. Reluctantly he returns to school where he is subjected to incessant bullying. Intelligent and bright, he is driven to create a plan to reclaim his school. After reading Paul will sign copies of the book.
