Faggots In The Stacks: A Book Group says
Faggots in the Stacks is an informal book discussion group for faggots who like to read. Let’s imagine our past, present, and future together by exploring the wildness of books. Bring your wisdom, your curiosity, and your sass. And, don’t forget to read the book beforehand!

Hosted by Tony Radovich & Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore

Our first book will be An Evening at The Garden Of Allah.
In spite of the efforts of moral crusaders, Seattle after World War II was a hotspot for dive bars, crooked cops, sex workers, drag queens, drag kings, and all sorts of prima donnas. But not all welcomed these nighttime denizens—if you were seen entering The Garden of Allah, a gay-owned cabaret, your reputation was effectively shot. Don Paulson's intensively-researched book, An Evening at The Garden Of Allah (written with Roger Simpson), comes to life through interviews with the people who performed at “The Garden,” shining a spotlight on one of our city’s most outrageous destinations in the decade after World War II.

This event is not officially sponsored or endorsed by the Seattle Public Library, because otherwise some faggots might get offended.

We'll be in the Community Room upstairs.
