A Perfect Scar and Other Stories (Haworth Press) and Art and Sex in Greenwich Village: Gay Literary Life after Stonewall (Carroll & Graf Publishers)

This evening with novelist, poet and playwright Healey, joined by award-winning and groundbreaking author of fiction and memoir, as well as co-founder of the U.S.'s first gay literary presses, Felice Picano -- proves to be provocative, powerful and enlightening.

Healey's writing "shows us men and women whose lives have been, or are about to be, forever altered by love. . . . SHARP, EMPATHIC, AND UNFORGETTABLE." --Bernard Cooper

Felice Picano was a major player - as an author, spokesman, and political and literary activist - in the foundation and growth of gay culture as it exists today. The Advocate wrote of him, "Picano's destiny has been to lead the way for a generation of gay writers." As such, his book is both a memoir and a vital history, written with startling detail and his keenest sense of memory.
