He said he was invited to hold the event in Alpharetta by the staff at the library branch after they saw how successful the event was at the Ponce de Leon branch.
He said the library system decided to withdraw its promotion of the reading event but will allow an unsanctioned version of the event to go on at the Alpharetta library April 27.
No library or county officials have explained the calendar change. A spokeswoman for the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System, which includes the Alpharetta and Ponce de Leon branches, Jessica Corbitt-Dominguez, said the event was not canceled.
She gave the following statement: "We appreciate the community support for the Drag Queen Story Time event, which has been successful and well received at the Ponce de Leon Library. We recommended to the organizer that it continue at the location where it has a strong track record. ... Not every program is offered at every location."
None of the initial responses to the tweet was positive.
Igarashi-Ball told the AJC on Friday he was “definitely interested to discuss the possibility, and we love that the mayor is supporting our event!”
