Lez Read meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. Our first meeting occured on April 13, 2011. We meet in the Den Coffeehouse. Currently, we anticipate reading a wide selection of fiction and non-fiction books on lesbian and queer themes or titles that were written by lesbian or queer-identified writers. Readers should read the book in advance of the meeting so we can have an active and lively discussion!

Description


“ZAMI is a fast-moving chronicle. From the author’s vivid childhood memories in Harlem to her coming of age in the late 1950s, the nature of Audre Lorde’s work is cyclical. It especially relates the linkage of women who have shaped her . . . Lorde brings into play her craft of lush description and characterization. It keeps unfolding page after page.”—Off Our Backs
