The Gilda Stories Wild Read Book Club says
Join us Sunday, August 21st at 2pm for a discussion of The Gilda Stories by Jewelle Gomez.

Before Buffy, before "Twilight," before Octavia Butler's "Fledgling," there was THE GILDA STORIES.

In 1850s Louisiana, 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 two hundred 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, re-definitions fo family, and yes, the erotic potential of the vampire story.

All are welcome but please RSVP at our store, Facebook, by phone (612-454-0455) or by email ( and we'll set up a chair for you.
