Pride On the Page

Event Details

The Palm Springs Public Library Foundation (Foundation) presents Pride on the Page, a two-day book festival on November 4–5, 2022 as an official event of Greater Palm Springs Pride.

Pride on the Page is a free Book Festival that will present five panels each day of LGBTQ+ affirming authors and/or for the LGBTQ+ community and their books over the course of two days, November 4 – 5, 2022 from 10 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. during Greater PS Pride. Our goal is to bring together thought-provoking, entertaining, and enriching subject-matter that communicates different viewpoints and represents various genres that will attract readers/people who have never experienced queer culture, and others who have made it the focus of their lives. Our panel moderators will lead the authors through discussions of their work, hearing from their point-of-view, helping attendees to discover new authors or get reacquainted with long-time favorites!
