Lambda Literary Awards - Readings from Colorado Finalists
Have you heard of the Lambda Literary Awards? For 25 years, the "Lammys" have celebrated the best in gay and lesbian literature. This year's Awards ceremony will be held in New York on June 2nd. There are a little over 20 award categories and more than 100 finalists nationwide.
It just so happens that 6 of this year's finalists live in the Denver area, so JCPL thought it would be neat to bring them in for a group reading for the public.
The Belmar Library is going to host the reading on Friday, May 10th, from 6:30-8pm. You'll get a chance to meet the authors, ask questions, get autographs, and hear some really great stories.
The readers and their nominated works are:
Jerry Wheeler - Strawberries and other Erotic Fruit
Kieran York - Appointment with a Smile
Sean Eads - The Survivors
Dylan Edwards - Transposes
Matt Kaily - Teeny Weenies: and Other Short Subjects
