Books of Wonder is thrilled to invite fans of teen fiction to the Launch Event for Two Boys Kissing. Join NY Times bestselling author DAVID LEVITHAN as he tells the based-on-true-events story of Harry and Craig, two 17-year-olds who are about to take part in a 32-hour marathon of kissing to set a new Guinness World Record-all of which is narrated by a Greek Chorus of the generation of gay men lost to AIDS. While the two increasingly dehydrated and sleep-deprived boys are locking lips, they become a focal point in the lives of other teen boys dealing with languishing long-term relationships, coming out, navigating gender identity, and falling deeper into the digital rabbit hole of gay hookup sites -- all while the two boys -- former boyfriends -- try to figure out their own feelings for each other. This sharp-witted, warm-hearted tale of teenage love, serves as a perfect thematic bookend to DAVID LEVITHAN'S teen novel debut and breakthrough, Boy Meets Boy, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. Be there beginning at 6pm, as DAVID LEVITHAN shares his impactful new books for the first time, answers questions from the audience, and signs all his titles for his adoring fans. Ages 12 to 16. Tuesday, August 27th, 6-8pm.
