      EVENT DETAILS
      Gabby Rivera in Conversation With Tehlor Kay Mejia

      Juliet Milagros Palante is a self-proclaimed closeted Puerto Rican baby dyke from the Bronx. Only, she’s not so closeted anymore. Not after coming out to her family the night before flying to Portland, Oregon, to intern with her favorite feminist writer – what’s sure to be a life-changing experience. And when Juliet’s coming-out crashes and burns, she’s not sure her mom will ever speak to her again. In a summer bursting with queer brown dance parties, a sexy fling with a motorcycling librarian, and intense explorations of race and identity, Juliet learns what it means to come out – to the world, to her family, to herself. Juliet Takes a Breath (Dial) is Gabby Rivera’s gutsy coming-of-age story for teens. Rivera will be joined in conversation by Tehlor Kay Mejia, author of We Set the Dark on Fire.
