Camp QUILTBAG - Preorder Campaign


From two powerhouse authors of middle-grade LGBTQIA+ literature comes a warm hug of a novel that is supportive and inclusive. NICOLE MELLEBY (left) and A.J. SASS take a classic summer camp setting, with all the classic summer camp activities, while also celebrating a diversity of LGBTQIA+ identities in a place where these kids can feel supported, learn about themselves, make lifelong friends, and have a lot of fun along the way.

Preorder Camp QUILTBAG from Mrs. Dalloway’s before March 21 and receive:

  • A rainbow friendship bracelet (just like the ones the campers make in the book!)
  • A Camp QUILTBAG branded “All Are Welcome” window cling
  • A Camp QUILTBAG bookmark with a camp packing list

Nicole Melleby, a New Jersey native, is the author of highly praised middle-grade books, including the Lambda Literary finalist Hurricane Season and ALA Notable book How to Become a Planet. She lives with her wife and their cats, whose need for attention oddly aligns with Nicole’s writing schedule. Visit her online at

A. J. Sass (he/they) is the critically acclaimed author of the ALA Rainbow Book List Top 10 titles Ellen Outside the Lines, which was also a Sydney Taylor Honor Book, and Ana on the Edge. He grew up in the Midwest, came of age in the South, and now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his husband and two cats who act like dogs.
