The Gilda Stories Expanded 25th Anniversary Edition Book Release Party With Jewelle Gomez says
Join Charis and ZAMI NOBLA in celebrating the 25th anniversary of the black lesbian classic, The Gilda Stories, out now in a beautiful expanded 25th anniversary edition from City Lights Press.

The Gilda Stories begins in 1850s Louisiana, where Gilda escapes slavery and learns about freedom while working in a brothel. After being initiated into eternal life as one who "shares the blood" by two women there, Gilda spends the next 200 years searching for a place to call home. An instant lesbian classic when it was first published in 1991, The Gilda Stories has endured as an auspiciously prescient book in its explorations of blackness, radical ecology, redefinitions of family, and yes, the erotic potential of the vampire story.

Jewelle Gomez will be here to talk about the work's continuing significance, how it found new life at City Lights, and what vampires can tell us about the state of our current world. This is a Charis Circle From Margin to Center Literary Event. The Suggested Donation is $5.
