Lambda Literary is announcing this year’s winners on June 12. On June 3 we celebrate the local finalists. We’ll have readings from Alexis Smith, Stephanie Adams-Santos, Qwo-Li Driskill, and Richard Compson Sater, with a Q&A led by last year’s winner in the memoir category, Kate Carroll de Gutes. What a way to usher in Pride Month.
Today is the day that authors around the country help us celebrate the reality that is independent book selling. Authors will be visiting bookstores to talk with customers, make reading recommendations, and sign their books (if wanted). Authors are readers, too, and this is their chance to get people excited about what they’re reading, or some of their old favorites. And we’ve got quite a lineup for you!
The parade of authors visiting us today:
11-1: Courtney Pierce, Margaret Pinard, and Jeannie Burt
12:30-2:30: Nancy Slavin
1-3: Linda Vogt
2-4: Cindy Brown and Lisa Alber
3-5: Anne Hendren
4-5: Tracy Manaster and Alexis Smith
