I’ve been bringing the word about golems to all sorts of organizations this fall: museums, community centers, congregations, bookstores, and yes, the fabled Park Slope Food Co-op, which most people don’t know has an excellent literary series. A few pictures:
First, the food! At my book party at Queers for Economic Justice in NYC, one of my favorite grassroots organizations.
I never expected to be up on a marquee, especially a church marquee. But I’m delighted! And this is not really a church, but the Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture, a humanist congregation and one of my favorite places on Earth. Gave a talk here “On Making People into Things,” about the radical-politics underpinnings of my book.
At the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art with the historian Jonathan Ned Katz, my idol and sometime student. Thanks to Leslie-Lohman for hosting a celebration where I could read surrounded by gorgeous art by Sasha Schneider and Ketch Weir.
Boston’s Calamus Bookstore, a very fine queer bookstore where I read surrounded by rare books of queer lit, politics and erotic art.
Incidentally, if you’re free this Tuesday November 26 , come out to see me in NYC at Literary Mischief, an event where I’ll be reading with Sweta Srivastava Vikram, author of No Ocean Here, and Rachel Kramer Bussel, editor of The Big Book of Orgasms. There will be performances and door prizes. 🙂 Info here.
