Friend Grief Events - August

2113630_orig-575x245If you subscribe to my newsletter (and you can do that on the right-hand side of this page), this will be old news. If not, there’s a lot going on:


August 4 – I’m doing a reading and signing of my latest book Friend Grief and Men: Defying Stereotypes at Bureau of General Services/Queer Division bookstore, in the LGBT Center in New York. I’m focusing on the most talked-about chapter in the book, comparing military veterans to long-term survivors in the AIDS community. Joining me is fellow ACT UP/NY member Jim Eigo, whose story is included. That book and Friend Grief and AIDS: Thirty Years of Burying Our Friends will be available for purchase.

561895824_640August 7 – Three of my books (Friend Grief in the Workplace: More Than an Empty Cubicle, Friend Grief and the Military: Band of Friends and Friend Grief and Men: Defying Stereotypes) will be for sale in the Emerging Writers Tent at the Queens Book Festival at Kaufman Astoria Studios. I'll be doing a brief reading and signing at 3:00 in the Reading Tent. Admission to the Festival is free.

August 22 – Since the series is finished – and it’s still hard to believe – I’m holding a series finale party at Women & Children First bookstore in Chicago. I’ll be doing a reading from the new book, and all six books will be available for sale.

If you’re in Chicago or New York during these events, I hope you’ll stop by!

Updates on all of these events will post on my Events page. More announcements coming soon for the fall, so be sure to check back often.
