Between the Covers UPTOWN June 9th: Bisexual Visibility with Sheela Lambert J.R. Yussuf, and Geer Austin

best bi short storiesJoin host Lori Perkins at An Bael Bocht Café, as we celebrate Best Bi Short Stories with Sheela Lambert J.R. Yussuf, and Geer Austin.

Best Bi Short Stories brings together the finest representations of bisexuality in fiction. The bisexuality of characters, like in real people, can be invisible to readers unless explicitly brought to their attention. Invisibility leads to underrepresentation, and on bookstore shelves that has certainly been true.

Best Bi Short Stories hopes to change that by presenting the very best quality, cast in a bold light. With an all-star author lineup ranging from Katherine Forrest to Jane Rule, Ann Herendeen to Jan Steckel, and curated by longtime bi activist Sheela Lambert, Best Bi Short Stories encompasses several genres. The authors are a diverse group, as well, and Lambert sought representation across age groups, cultures, ethnicities and sexualities in both the authors and stories, demonstrating the richness of bi experience.

Reading starts at 8:00 pm. An Bael Bocht, 445 W. 338 St in Riverdale (take the #1 train).
