One Night in June
California LGBT writers celebrate Pride with a literary reading presented by the Friends of the San Francisco Public Library!
One Night in June: The 3rd Annual Queer Reading for Pride happens June 22, 2016, 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM, at the Readers Bookstore, Fort Mason Center, Building “C”.
New York Times best-selling author Kevin Sessums (Mississippi Sissy) and rising star Audrey Coulthurst (Of Fire and Stars) join nine other queer authors from the Bay Area to present a live reading of their published pieces and works-in-progress. The event is free and open to the public.
Readers include Natalia Vigil (Still Here San Francisco, a live theater exploration of the queer scene in 1980s and 1990s San Francisco), National Poetry Slam stars Cam Awkward Rich and Amber Flame, and other masters of short fiction, memoir, and poetry. They are joined by emerging voices in queer fiction and poetry.
Sarah Rosedale, manager of the Readers Bookstore, a public venue operated by the Friends of the San Francisco Public Library, said, “Readings such as this are at the core of what we do to ensure everyone in San Francisco has the opportunity to read and hear local authors. We are very excited to be contributing a literary event of this caliber to the overall celebration of Pride month in San Francisco.”
