Can't Take That Away - A Conversation with Jeffrey Guard & Steven Salvatore

Come join us for an exciting evening with author Steven Salvatore, co-facilitator of The LOFT's Writers Workshop as we celebrate the launch of their debut novel, "Can't Take That Away" published by Bloomsbury. 

Come and learn about Steven's experience in publishing with a major publisher, tips on getting published, and best of all, enjoy a reading from their novel!
CAN’T TAKE THAT AWAY is about Carey Parker, a genderqueer student who dreams of being a diva like their hero Mariah Carey, but when they are cast in the lead female role in the school musical, they face discrimination from a teacher, a few parents, and their tormentor, and are removed from the show. Carey must learn that in order to be their authentic self, they will have to find their voice, rally their friends, and fight against injustices from a closed-minded school administration.
The novel is available for purchase on March 9, 2021--and we encourage you to buy local for a personalized, autographed copy!
.
If you live in Westchester, The Village Bookstore is located in Pleasantville, NY, and you can call 914-769-8322 to order a personalized, autographed copy!
