December 20   7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Calling All Queer Book Lovers!

For the winter we will be reading “Afterparties” by Anthony Veasna So. You Must RSVP on EventBrite to attend.

The Bookclub is reading this book for the winter, November and December and we are meeting on December 20th, IN PERSON! So if you want to come you must RSVP on Eventbrite.
Join us Monday December 20th at 7:30 PM, (PST) in person, second floor of Strut! 470 Castro Street, San Francisco CA 94114
Please make sure to read the entire book beforehand and come ready to discuss your thoughts. Spoiler Alert: We always discuss the ending of each book, so we highly recommend you finish it before attending. This queer book club has been around since 2003. We will be sharing the bookclub zoom link here the day of the show for those of you that want to participate virtually, we are trying to do a hybrid event.
This is an in-person event so we are limiting the number of folks that are allowed in the building, RSVP now before space runs out, only folks that RSVP on Eventbrite will be allowed to attend, wearing masks the entire time is mandatory, and proof of vaccination cards will be needed at the door.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Seamlessly transitioning between the absurd and the tenderhearted, balancing acerbic humor with sharp emotional depth, Afterparties offers an expansive portrait of the lives of Cambodian-Americans. As the children of refugees carve out radical new paths for themselves in California, they shoulder the inherited weight of the Khmer Rouge genocide and grapple with the complexities of race, sexuality, friendship, and family. With nuanced emotional precision, gritty humor, and compassionate insight into the intimacy of queer and immigrant communities, the stories in Afterparties deliver an explosive introduction to the work of Anthony Veasna So.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Anthony Veasna So was a graduate of Stanford University and earned his MFA in fiction at Syracuse University. His writing has appeared in the New Yorker, n+1, Granta, and ZYZZYVA.
