Tombolo Books is proud to be hosting Rob Sanders' launch party for PRIDE: The Story of Harvey Milk and the Rainbow Flag, the very first picture book about the remarkable and inspiring story of the Gay Pride Flag!

In this deeply moving and empowering true story, young readers will trace the life of the Gay Pride Flag, from its beginnings in 1978 with social activist Harvey Milk and designer Gilbert Baker to its spanning of the globe and its role in today's world. Award-winning author Rob Sanders's stirring text, and acclaimed illustrator Steven Salerno's evocative images, combine to tell this remarkable - and undertold - story. It is a story of love, hope, equality, and pride.

Rob will be joined in conversation with Mellissa Alonson-Teston, Supervisor for Hillsborough County Public Schools’ Reading Coach Project and adjunct instructor in the College of Education at USF.

Pre-orders through Tombolo are welcome and will be rewarded! To order call 727-755-9456 or email alsace@tombolobooks.com
