Chuck Forester: Eat, Sleep, Love

September 4 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Eat, Sleep, Love, by Chuck Forester, is a fond look back on a brief time when life opened up for gay men only to collapse with the deadly arrival of AIDS that marked the end of an era. It’s 1971 and Charlie McKey, a young gay man from Point Reyes Station, California, arrives in San Francisco, where free love and gay liberation abound. Newly out but open to experiencing the new wonders that suddenly surround him, Charlie jumps in headfirst, immersing himself in a no-holds-barred world of men, drugs, and endless sexual pleasure he’d never dreamed possible.

Chuck Forester came out in San Francisco in 1972 and participated in gay history as his generation created the Castro. Chuck worked for three San Francisco mayors and several non-profits, and he has been writing for the past six years. His work includes the memoir, Do You Live Around Here?, and the novel Our Time: San Francisco in the 70s. His second novel, Eat, Sleep, Love was released earlier this year.  Join us as Chuck reads from his new book, and takes questions from the audience.  Eat, Sleep, Love will be available for purchase at the event.
