Andrea Gibson is a poet, author, and songwriter with a knack for humor and warmth. Their writing is at times subtle and heartwarming, but often cuts through the mundane to tackle topics of sexuality, politics, family, and love. Gibson got started as a spoken-word poet in Boulder, Colorado, and they often blend music, poetry, and storytelling to reach their audience. They have travelled the world to perform honest and vulnerable work that centers around gender and survival. Gibson visits Room of One's Own here for a night of stories, exploration, and understanding in celebration of their newest book Take Me With You. This new text is a small, pocketbook that is meant to be accessible at any point in time for the reader to delve into messages of healing and support. The book also features illustrations by Sarah J. Coleman. —John McCracken
