TMC has a book club and it’s great, you should come
HELLO DEAR READERS. If you’ve ever read our stuff and thought, ‘I would like to read more with these ladies’, we totally have a solution for you.
One Sunday a month, at a dinky little pub in Soho, we gather, drink, read, talk and generally soak in each other’s awesomeness. If you want to do any/all of these things, feel free to join! We’re very nice and not at all scary (I think).
This month’s meeting will be as follows:
When? Sunday, 18th March 2012 at 1:00 pm
Where? The Royal George in Soho (just by G-A-Y Late)
What are we reading? The Essential Dykes to Watch Out For by Alison Bechdel. Previous attendees will remember that we read Bechdel’s Fun Home way back last summer, but DTWOF is perhaps her most famous work, a comic she’s been writing since the 80′s which predates all those lesbian stereotypes (vegetarianism, militant feminism, buzzcuts) but doesn’t necessarily exclude them. It’s fun – you’ll love it (and if you don’t, this is your chance to let out all those FEELINGS).
Want more details? Email us.
You can read a number of the strips on Bechdel’s website, but these aren’t complete, so you probably want to buy the book anyway. As always I strongly recommend you get your copy of the book from Gay’s the Word, but DTWOF should be available at most bookshops.
