About the event

Please join us for a reading by Writer-in-Residence, Ginny Rorby, from her hot-off-the-press MG/YA novel, Freeing Finch. The Reading will take place at the brand-new Freedom Kettle Corn Creekside Café and Coffee Shop.  This event is free, but donations towards the WCDH 2020 “Getting it Write” LGBTQ+ fellowship will be gratefully accepted. 

Released just this month, Freeing Finch is an inspiring and insightful story of a transgender girl and an abandoned dog who overcome adversity to find a home, love, and a sense of belonging. Ginny wrote us about what inspired her: "Three years ago, my friend Bill underwent gender-affirmation surgery at age seventy to become Kathryn, a journey that was covered in The Washington Post. I wrote to her to express my  support, and she was generous enough to share her gender identity experience with me. From this first letter grew not only friendship and admiration but also this story of a girl named Finch and her beloved  dog, Ben." 

Ginny Rorby is an author, advocate, and activist from California, recipient of the 2015 Mendocino Arts Council Award, and the President of the Mendocino Coast Writers’ Conference.  She writes books that connect children to the natural world and received the ALA’s Schneider Family Book Award for her novel, Hurt Go Happy
