      Jazz and Friends Reading at My Favorite Books

      We hope you’ll join us for a reading of I am Jazz with Tallahassee mom, Kimmie Fink on Thursday February 27th at 11am at My Favorite Books.

      I am Jazz is the story of a transgender child based on the real-life experience of Jazz Jennings, who has become a spokesperson for trans kids everywhere.

      The fourth annual Jazz and Friends National Day of School and Community Readings
      is sponsored by the Welcoming Schools Program at the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation, the educational arm of the nation’s largest LGBTQ civil rights organization, and the National Educational Association (NEA), the country’s largest professional employee organization, representing 3 million educators across the U.S. It unites in action youth, educators, and allies across the country who are hosting readings of I Am Jazz in dozens of schools, churches, bookstores, homes, and community centers in states across the country.

      The nationwide action is inspired by the more than 600 residents of tiny Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, who unequivocally rebuked bigotry and censorship in 2015, showing up at a public reading of I Am Jazz. The reading was organized by a caring parent after legal threats by an anti-LGBTQ hate group forced a local school to cancel plans to support a transgender student by reading the book in class. Days later, the Mount Horeb school board adopted inclusive measures fully accommodating transgender students.

      My Favorite Books is happy to host a Jazz and Friends National Day of School and Community Reading that embraces inclusion and acceptance; we hope to see you on Thursday Feb. 27th in the store! All ages are welcome!
