Lighthouse is OVERJOYED to host the book launch of our very own Writer in Residence, Eris Young!

Showing what life is like as a nonbinary or genderqueer person, Eris’s book explores relationships, mental and physical health, language use and identity and appearance, providing advice for nonbinary people and how friends and family can support them.

There will be a short interview followed by plenty of time for audience questions - with time to meet the writer and mingle afterwards!

Eris Young is a queer, nonbinary trans writer, editor and a distant relative of John Harrison. They are from Santa Ana, California, and currently live in Edinburgh, UK. They are Lighthouse’s Writer in Residence, and have contributed to multiple publications including 404 Ink’s We Were Always Here and Knight Errant Press’ F,M or Other. They are also Managing Editor of Æther & Ichor fantasy magazine.
