Kirk Cameron had supporters and protesters at his first national "See You at the Library" Brave Books event this Saturday in Tayler, Texas, a city just north of Austin. The former child actor turned Christian and family advocate held a gathering of families who sang the national anthem, listened as he read from his book, "As We Grow," and prayed for kids.
Protesters showed up outside Cameron's event and argued with reporters, including Tayler Hansen who was on the scene for The Post Millennial, about books with inappropriate or explicit content for children. When Hansen asks this LGBTQ+ protester about whether an explicit, sexual image is appropriate for children in a book, the protester flips Hansen off.
On a more positive note, the crowd sang the national anthem to open Cameron's event, which features an emphasis on being pro-God and pro-America.
Children gathered around Kirk as he reads the Brave Book he authored, "As We Grow." He touts his book club as one that families "can trust," because they are pro-God and pro-America.
When Kirk Cameron and Brave Books first launched their book reading plans for public libraries across the US last fall, over 50 libraries pushed back, denying them access outside of room rentals. This from many libraries that routinely and proudly host Drag Queen Story Hours. Now, many communities are embracing the series, despite their libraries' desire to shut it down.
Swimmer and women's right advocate Riley Gaines attended the event and signed books. Gaines is the former University of Kentucky swimmer who made national news by standing up for the swim team and their right to privacy and fair play against fellow team mate and biological male, Lia Thomas. Gaines recently testified in front of a House Committee on women's rights to fair play.
August 5 was the first national "See You at the Library," an event Cameron hoped to inspire at libraries across the country to pray, sing, and read Brave Books. Cameron could not be at every library August 5 but encouraged supporters, via his Brave Books web site, to host a library hour at their own local library. More than 280 libraries saw community organizers bring readings to their locations.
Cameron, 52, initially became famous as a teen actor. He played Mike Seaver on the sitcom "Growing Pains." His sister, Candace Cameron Buré, 47, was also a famous child actor, most notably known for her role as DJ Tanner on the sitcom "Full House." Both are now outspoken advocates of the Christian faith and family values.
