About: In celebration of LGBT Pride Month, Durham County Library will host LaToya Hankins for a reading from her book SBF Seeking. This novel explores what happens when a woman decides to place a personal ad four months before her wedding day. Her small town life in eastern North Carolina has left her unprepared for the personal journey she undertakes as she struggles to come to terms with her sexuality and to find her heart’s path. A book signing will follow the reading, which will take place at 7 p.m. on Monday, June 24, at the Main Library, 300 N. Roxboro St.

A North Carolina native, Hankins graduated from Eastern Carolina University with a degree in journalism. Hankins serves as the co-chair of Shades of Pride, a nonprofit agency created to acknowledge and celebrate North Carolina’s African-American LBGTQ community, and is an active supporter of LBGTQ issues. She lives in Raleigh.
