FARM TO CITY - Lesbian, Gay and Queer Writers Discuss their Rural Roots  March 13 @ SF Public Library, main branch

Lesbian, Gay, and Queer writers discuss their rural roots. Bay Area writers often come from different places, small towns or even farm communities. How do their life experiences shape their literary work? How do they depict the lives of their childhood with their identities as urban adults? Nona Caspers, Vernon Keeve III, Jim Provenzano, James J. Siegel, and Mark Abramson discuss their work in various styles; fiction, memoir and poetry.
