BOOKSMITH BOOKSWAP: Pride Edition
June means Pride, so get ready for our queerest Bookswap yet! Bring your favorite genre-bender: a queer book you love, a book by a queer author, a story you love illicitly - it all works. You'll talk about it in small groups, and at the end, we'll have a big, rowdy, white-elephant swap.
$25 gets you dinner, an open bar, a closed bookstore all to yourself (and 40 of your new friends), discounts, swag, and MORE.
Special Guests: MICHELLE TEA and ALI LIEBEGOTT!

Michelle is founder and Executive Director of RADAR Productions, a literary non-profit that oversees the Sister Spit international performance tours, the monthly RADAR Reading Series in San Francisco, the annual Radar LAB Retreat, and other programs.
