TJ Klune: Enters the Chat - June 5 from 6 - 7:30 p.m. at the Tsakopoulos Library Galleria
We are excited to have bestselling author TJ Klune in conversation with the Big Gay Fiction Podcast to chat about publishing, writing, queer identity, book-banning, being neurodiverse, and the upcoming sequel to The House in the Cerulean Sea.

TJ Klune is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling, Lambda Literary Award-winning author of The House in the Cerulean SeaThe Extraordinaries, and more. Being queer himself, Klune believes it's important—now more than ever—to have accurate, positive queer representation in stories.

The Big Gay Fiction Podcast is for avid readers and passionate fans of queer romance fiction. In each episode, Jeff and Will bring you exclusive author interviews, book recommendations, and explore the latest in queer pop culture. Based out of Roseville, CA they have hosted many major LGBTQIA writers, including TJ Klune more times than any other guest, and we are excited to unite them for the first time in person. You won't want to miss it!
