Bill Konigsburg - YSS Luncheon Speaker!
As if you needed another reason to attend WLA in October, 2016 Stonewall Book Award-winner YA author Bill Konigsberg is our Wednesday October 26 YSS Luncheon speaker this year! Not only does he seem to be a funny, smart and passionate about reaching out to LGBTQ youth (https://billkonigsberg.com/
