Back to The Lost Library

This Lambda Literary interview with Philip Rappaport, Open Road Media's Director of Publishing Partnerships, will mainly be of interest to those who follow publishing trends. However, there is an interesting discussion of The Lost Library, the anthology of essays about GLBT literature no longer in print that we read last year, and Open Road's campaign to acquire the rights to those works and reissue them as e-books.

Bidart / Gurganus Readings

Frank Bidart, whose Metaphysical Dog we will be discussing later this year, is giving a reading this Thursday evening (2/19/15) at 921 Pennsylvania Ave SE. Admission is free but registration is required. For more information, see Sunday's Washington Post article.

Also, in a couple of months (Tuesday, April 7), Allan Gurganus, whose The Practical Heart we have read, will be giving a reading with Elizabeth Strout at the Folger Shakespeare Library. Tickets are required and are $15 each.

Ici repose …

Am I the only one who is a fan of Colette?

Maybe I was a lesbian in the fin de siècle.
