Happy Pride Month!

To kick off Pride, Jeff reviews Phil Stamper's middle grade book "Small Town Pride." Jeff also talks about the dangers of book bannings and anti-LGBTQ+ legislation, and that everyone should be actively supporting causes that fight for diversity and inclusion.

Children's book authors Justin Richardson and Peter Parnell, authors of the classic "And Tango Makes Three," join Jeff to talk about their book, which has been repeatedly banned and challenged since its publication more than 15 years ago. Peter and Justin discuss what's different about the current rash of book bannings, their response to Florida's "Don't Say Gay" bill, and have tips on how everyone can take action.
