Due to a flight cancelation we have postponed the "Freedom in Fantasy: Reclaiming Your Representation" with Aiden Thomas, Dine & Discuss tonight. It has been rescheduled for April 25 during Trans Week of Visibility! We apologize for this inconvenience.

Please note that our Winter 2024 in-person events will require masks due to the rise in COVID-19 and flu activity within the region. The MCC will provide masks to attendees on site, as needed.

Curious about worldbuilding? Wondering how to bring your unique experiences into your creative world? Interested in learning more about publishing and the fantasy genre? Join the RCSGD and Aiden Thomas, New York Times bestselling author of Cemetery Boys and The Sunbearer Trials, for a moderated discussion and Q&A on authenticity, fantasy, and the power of sharing your story. Afterwards, join us for a book signing and community dinner hosted in the MCC Lounge!

Speaker Bio: Aiden Thomas is a trans, Latinx, New York Times bestselling author of young adult novels. They received an MFA in Creative Writing from Mills College. Originally from Oakland, California, they now make their home in Portland, OR. Aiden is notorious for not being able to guess the endings of books and movies, and organizes their bookshelves by color.

Co- Sponsors: RCSGD, TQCOMM, MCC, the Women's Center.
