Girls Will Be Boys Will Be Girls Will Be…Coloring Book has been out of print for a decade.

Georges, Kristine Virsis, Simantha Stone, Michael Asbill, Michael Wilcock, Hope Windle, Shane Ballard, Julie Novak, Rich Wentworth, Amanda Fucello, Paul Heath, Quinn Russell, and more.
This book is a celebration of gender. In this book, you will meet girls who build drum sets and fix bikes; boys who bake and knit; and all manner of children along the gender spectrum. This book is for all the heroic handsome beauties of the world. It is a reminder that we never need to compromise ourselves to fit someone else’s idea of who we ought to be.
The future is gender fabulous. Come celebrate with us and get a signed copy of the book!
At 6 pm, there will be the most special amazing, not-to-be-missed performances by guest musicians Samiha Golden, Graciela Reyes-Bondar and Rhys Ellis!
