Launch Event with Greg Howard for Middle School's A Drag, You Better Werk! in conversation with Maulik Pancholy
Don't miss GREG HOWARD in conversation with author and actor MAULIK PANCHOLY on our Instagram Wednesday May 20th at 4pm (EST) as we celebrate his latest release, Middle School's a Drag, You Better Werk!
Twelve-year-old Mikey Pruitt — president, founder, and CEO of Anything, Inc. — has always been an entrepreneur at heart, though he's still looking for his million-dollar idea. Most of his ideas so far have failed. A baby tornado ran off with his general store and the kids in his neighborhood never did come back for their second croquet lesson. But Mikey is determined to keep at it. So when kid drag queen Coco Caliente, Mistress of Madness and Mayhem, (or, as she's know around school, Julian Vasquez) comes to Mikey looking for an agent, Mikey finds his million-dollar idea: the Anything Talent and Pizzazz Agency! Soon, Mikey has a whole roster of kid clients looking to hit it big or at least win the middle school talent show’s hundred-dollar prize. And as newly out Mikey prepares Julian for the gig of a lifetime, he realizes there’s no rulebook for being gay. If Julian can be openly gay at school, maybe -- just maybe -- Mikey can, too.
