To create the display, Epilogue’s event coordinator Gaby Lori said she repurposed a carousel that formerly featured young adult books. “The idea is that queer youth, or anyone who wants a free queer book, can just pick it up,” Lori said. People can donate to the stand on Epilogue’s website. Patrons can also purchase a book to donate in-person by letting employees know at checkout that the book is for Reading Rainbows.
