Palm Springs Public Library Foundation Announces Pride Book Festival

The Palm Springs Public Library Foundation announced Thursday a two-day pride book festival in collaboration with Greater Palm Springs Pride.

The Pride on the Page festival will be held on Nov. 4 and Nov. 5 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with five panels of LGBTQ+ affirming authors each day at the Welwood Murray Memorial Library patio, 100 South Palm Canyon Drive.

“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,” said a statement from the foundation.

Attendees will get to reacquaint or discover new authors — like Melissa Chadburn, Michael Craft, Steven Rowley, Katherine V. Forrest and Rebecca Walker — by listening to discussions led by panel moderators about their work and points of view, according to foundation officials. Each hour-long discussion will be followed by a break for book signings.

A ticketed fundraising event for the foundation will also be held in the evening with Sharon Gless discussing her autobiography with her former co-star Peter Paige from Queer as Folk. It will be held at the Plaza Theatre, 128 South Palm Canyon Drive.

Palm Springs Pride Week will take place from Nov. 1 to Nov. 6.
