Dismantle Change Build Center
Honey & Vinegar: recipe for an outlaw release party! - 7-9pm
14 NE Killingsworth Street
PORTLAND, OR 97217 [map]
Price: free

My memoir has been published by Beaten Track Publishing and I want to celebrate and share it with you! Please join me at the Dismantle Change Build Center where I will read from the book and sell copies (aCover of Honey & Vinegar: recipe for an outlawt a sliding scale rate) and we can eat snacks and smile about it together!

Honey & Vinegar: Recipe for an Outlaw gives an intimate look at how the values and hopes of the 1960s carried through into the queer activism of the 1990s. It's a story told from various locations including ashrams, community housing, and not so great neighborhoods from the middle of Arizona to the middle of Florida, and back again. Exploring issues of class, family, embodiment, sexuality, identity, and agency in an illustrated series of vignettes that blur the lines between poetry and prose, Honey & Vinegar is a scrapbook of resistance.
