We have a few great events in December. If you're in New York City, Philadelphia, or Sault Ste. Marie, read on for a chance to see some of our authors. But hurry, two of them are today!
Sarah Schulman has two events for her new book Israel/Palestine and the Queer International this week. You can catch her tonight at 7 pm in New York City at the Bureau of General Services-Queer Division, a new space for books and events at Strange Loop Gallery on Orchard Street. And Philadelphia fans can see her tomorrow evening at 5:30 pm at Giovanni's Room, where she will be in conversation with Rabbi Linda Holtzman. Read previews of the event in Philadelphia Gay News and Philadelphia Weekly.
Today at 3pm at the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at New York University, Thuy Linh Tu will be participating on a panel entitled "The New Economies of Sex and Beauty." Tu is the author of The Beautiful Generation: Asian Americans and the Cultural Economy of Fashion.
Also at NYU, next week on December 13th at 6 pm, Ann Cvetkovich will be reading from her new book Depression: A Public Feeling. The event is sponsored by the NYU Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality.
And one last event before the semester wraps up: if you're in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, you can catch Murray Forman speaking about the early days of televison, the subject of his book One Night on TV Is Worth Weeks at the Paramount, on Monday, December 17 at 7 pm at the Centennial Public Library.
