Must-See Monday - Pride Edition

It's Pride this week, so there are plenty of GLBT events to attend. So before you hit the parade, check out a few of these queer literary happenings:

Stop by Gerber Hart library (1127 W. Granville) tonight at 7:00pm to discuss STONEWALL by Martin Duberman.

Check out the Solo Performance series June 22, 23, and 24 at 7:30pm at the Straw Dog Theater Company (3829 N. Broadway). Performances by local GLBTQ writers, including Cookie Crumbles, Deb Lewis, and Byron Flitsch, sponsored by the New Town Writers.

The annual Pride Reading and Open Mike will be held at Women and Children First (5233 N. Clark) on Tuesday, June 23 at 7:00pm. Hear local queer authors, including Robert Rodi and Jennifer Harris.

Head back to Women and Children First on Thursday, June 25 at 7:00pm for the GLBTQ Double Header with readings by E. Patrick Johnson and Larry La-Fountain Strokes.

For a non-pride related event, Janet Evanovich signs copies of her latest Stephanie Plum novel, FINGER LICKIN' FIFTEEN at the Magnificent Mile Borders (830 N. Michigan) on Friday, June 26th at 6:00pm.

Also, for a must-hear event, tune in to Blog Talk Radio's Top Shelf on Tuesday, June 23 at 4:30pm EST for interviews with Jamie Freveletti and Lawrence Block. Lawrence's new memoir, STEP BY STEP, about his experiences race walking, very different than the other 60 books he's published. Since Jamie is a runner who's married to a race walker, she and Lawrence are a perfect match.
