"Brianne is an incredibly warm speaker who takes great care in discussing LGBTQ families.  Her table at the April 2019 Human Library program, sponsored by the Public Library for Union County and the Susquehanna Valley United Way Diversity and Inclusion Impact Council, was very popular because of her openness, her ability to connect with her audience, and her fabulous sense of humor."
