Update: This event was recorded and is now available for viewing:
I have done a few online gigs during the pandemic, most of them being class visits (hello to any of those students who might be reading this: students at Kew High School and T Cooper’s fiction-writing students at Emory University 👋🏽). I miss in-person appearances and the immediacy of the audience response, but something that has been good about online gigs is that they can traverse large physical distances, bringing together writers and audiences across different regions and timezones. My latest forthcoming gig is very much in that vein and it’s free of charge as well:
Queer Writers, Speaking Across Borders
Thursday, December 17, 2020
6:00 PM – 7:30 PM EST
Six authors from four time zones share their writing, and talk about how queerness operates in their work and how this has changed over time.
Join Kiran Bhat, Tom Cho, Farzana Doctor, Jee Leong Koh, Angela Meyer, and Sarah Sala for a group reading and a conversation moderated by William Johnson, Deputy Director of Lambda Literary.
Suggested donation of $5 to benefit the Bureau of General Services—Queer Division
All are welcome to join, with or without a donation
Registration on Eventbrite is required in order to receive the Zoom link on the day of the event.
The Bureau’s online store features books by several of the participating authors.
Thank you for supporting the Bureau by purchasing books from us!
Here’s the link to register and to read the bios of all the authors.
This event is being presented by Bureau of General Services—Queer Division, a fantastic NYC independent, all-volunteer queer cultural center, bookstore, and event space (where the North American edition of Look Who’s Morphing was launched one evening in 2014, along with the 25th anniversary re-release of Sarah Schulman’s book After Delores). Highly recommend you support this store during the pandemic and beyond!
