'My Princess Boy' Author Speaks at EvCC May 10
EVERETT, Wash. – Cheryl Kilodavis, author of the bestselling children’s book “My Princess Boy,” will speak about accepting differences 12:30-1:30 p.m. May 10, at Everett Community College’s Baker Hall, room 120.
“My Princess Boy” is the true story of Kilodavis’ younger son’s love for dressing up in pink, sparkly dresses and his search for acceptance.
Kilodavis was inspired to write the book during her own process of accepting her son’s interest and passions and used it to help her son’s teachers and fellow students better understand him.
She hopes the book will become part of a movement of acceptance for every child who has ever felt left out or misunderstood just because they’re different.
The event is free and open to the public. Copies of “My Princess Boy” will be for sale at the presentation. Kilodavis will sign books after she speaks.
Kilodavis has spoken around the world about acceptance, gender expression and diversity. She has been interviewed by NPR, the Dr. Phil show, People magazine and the Today Show.
The lecture is sponsored by EvCC’s Student Activities Office and EvCC’s Safe Zone program, which works to create an environment at EvCC where lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning and allied (LGBTQA) students, faculty and staff will feel safe, comfortable, accepted and supported by the campus community.
