The Saints + Sinners LGBTQ Literary Festival invades Tubby & Coo's Mid-City Book Shop's Bookstream with a reading series featuring SAS20 authors the weekend of April 17-19. The SASFestival believes that this is an important time for the literary and LGBTQ communities to stay close-knit and supportive.

"Our official SASFest bookseller, Tubby & Coo's Mid-City Book Shop, offered to host a virtual reading series featuring some of our SAS20 authors," said Executive director Paul J. Willis."The offer from Candice Huber to host this event after our Festival was cancelled due to COVID-19 fulfills our desire to connect writers to readers and to support independent bookstores."

Tubby & Coo's will host the online event, SAS Invades Bookstream, April 17, 18, and 19 from 10 am to 1 pm.

Featured readers include Alex Myers, Trebor Healey, Carter Sickels, Elena Dykewomon, Robert Fieseler, Lindsay Sproul, Lewis DeSimone, Deb Jannerson, Louis Flint Ceci, Paula Martinac, Rick Reed, David Pederson, and many others.
