An Evening with Jackson Bird
Hosted by Students Beyond the Binary.
Join Students Beyond the Binary on Friday, April 7th from 4 – 5:30 pm in the Multicultural Center for an evening with Jackson Bird! Jackson Bird will be reading an excerpt from his book ‘sorted’ and afterward will be answering questions. We hope to see you at this awesome event. If you haven’t already read the book, you can pick up a copy in the Multicultural Center at your convenience while supplies last.
