Local author and teacher Rob Sanders has written a children’s book about the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City. It tells about police raiding a gay club and six days of protests and riots that followed. This led to to overturning regulations that penalized bars for serving suspected gay patrons.
Pride month is a great time to buy a copy of “Stonewall: A Building. An Uprising. A Revolution.” Meet Sanders and get autographed copies at these Pride events:
– Tampa Bay Rays Pride Night game on June 14, Tropicana Field.
– St. Pete Pride Festival on June 23, Tombolo Books tent.
