Dorothy Allison reads tonight at LGBT Historical Society

Ugh…this blog needs a way to have sub-headings. WordPress.com – free but crude.

Enough of that, I am excited to be getting ready to head downtown to the next edition of “Passing on the Pen” which brings important LGBT authors to a monthly forum. Tonight Dorothy Allison (“Bastard out of Carolina”) is reading.

A self-described feminist, a working-class storyteller, a Southern expatriate, a sometime poet, and a happily born-again Californian, Allison has written powerfully about class, lesbianism, feminism, and sexual child abuse.

I’ll report tomorrow.
