Alison Bechdel at Big Blue Marble!

Save the date, everyone: Alison Bechdel of Dykes to Watch Out For fame will be at the bookstore on June 22 at 3 p.m. to sign copies of her new graphic memoir, Fun Home. This is a fabulous chance to get your copy of Fun Home and to meet the author. That evening, she'll be reading at the Free Library at 7 p.m.

Poetry Aloud and Alive

Just a little note to tell everyone that our monthly poetry reading, Poetry Aloud and Alive, will be held on May 19, Friday, at 7:30pm. That's the third Friday of the month. Usually it is held on fourth Fridays but this month Michael Kleiner will be giving a reading from his new memoir Beyond the Cold that night. Hope to see you all there- this poetry night is always inspiring.
