Perfectly Queer Winter 2020 Reading
February 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Winter in San Francisco. Baby, it’s cold outside–comparatively, at least. Warm up with five Queer authors at Perfectly Queer Tuesday, February 11, 7pm to 8pm at Dog Eared Books Castro, 489 Castro St. in you-know-where. Dale Corvino is joining us from New York City! He’ll be joined by local glitterati Denise Conca, Wayne Goodman, Rob Rosen, and Cass Sellars–each of them reading from new fiction. Free admission, free refreshments, and door prizes on the stroke of 7! http://bit.ly/2RjGosI
More about the authors:
Dale Corvino’s short fiction and creative nonfiction have appeared in various journals and anthologies, including online at the Rumpus and Salon. He received the 2015 Christopher Hewitt Award for Fiction, was a finalist in the 2017 Saints + Sinners Short Fiction contest, and won the 2018 Gertrude Press Fiction Chapbook contest. WORKER NAMES was published in 2019. Most recently, he reflected on his visit to Santiago, Chile during the massive popular uprising and the legacy of queer writer Pedro Lemebel for the Gay & Lesbian Review. www.dalecorvino.com
Denise Conca is an anti-capitalist artist, writer, and cashier living in San Francisco. Her short works have appeared in Sinister Wisdom’s “Dump Trump” issue and in RFD magazine. Her recently published book, A RECURSIVE NATURE, explores the sexual exploits of a middle-aged leather dyke living on the margins of a rapidly gentrifying San Francisco and is available at San Francisco Public Library and independent bookstores. Conca is featured in the short documentary film Refuse and Refashion which she wrote, co-produced, and directed.
Wayne Goodman has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area most of his life (with too many cats). He hosts Queer Words Podcast, conversations with queer-identified authors about their works and lives. When not writing or recording, Goodman enjoys playing Gilded Age parlor music on the piano, with an emphasis on women, gay, and Black composers. ALL THE RIGHT PLACES is a collection of short stories, most written for submission to anthologies or collections. Starting in the near future and proceeding to the near past, men interact with other men in the pursuit of love and companionship.
