In partnership with the Southern Independent Bookseller Alliance, Page 158 Books is excited to present Reader, Meet Writer, a virtual event series. Space is limited, so RSVP is required. Check out the rest of the tour on our website. Sign up here.


Join activist and actor Miles McKenna in conversation with actor Emily Hampshire, (Stevie Budd on Schitt's Creek) to discuss Miles's new book, Out!, the ultimate coming-out survival guide.


Activist Miles McKenna came out on his YouTube channel in 2017, documenting his transition to help other teens navigate their identities and take charge of their own coming-out stories. From that wisdom comes Out!, the ultimate coming-out survival guide. Find validation, inspiration, and support for your questions big and small—whether you’re exploring your identity or seeking to understand the experience of an awesome queer person in your life.


Miles McKenna is an actor and social media icon known for his comedic voice and LGBTQ+ advice and activism. He was recently awarded the Shorty Award for Best LGBTQ+ Account of 2017, headlined two nationwide tours that covered a total of 35 shows, and has creatively collaborated with companies like Google, HBO, ATT, and Lyft. Find out more on his YouTube channel, MilesChronicles, or on Instagram at @themilesmckenna.
