Attend this workshop and the Faith Formation Working Group will send each diocal church that attends a free copy of the book “Sam!” by Dani Gabriel

From Penny Candy Books:  

“Sam is a nine-year-old boy who loves riding his bike and learning about the American Revolution. There’s just one problem: Sam’s family knows him as a girl named Isabel. Sam feels a sense of relief when he finally confides in his sister Maggie, and then his parents, even though it takes them a while to feel comfortable with it. But with lots of love and support, Sam and his family learn and grow through Sam’s journey to embrace his true self.  In the vein of I Am Jazz by Jessica Herthel, Sam! is based on the true story of the author’s family. With a note from Gabriel explaining their family’s experience, Sam! is an important addition to a list of books that help children and adults discuss gender identity. Written by Dani Gabriel, illustrated by Robert Liu-Trujillo.” More about “Sam!
