Event description

Description

Local author David Jay Collins reads his favorite selections from Gaybash, set in Lakeview:

Matt Tompkins, a reserved gay man, has always played by the rules and has created a comfortable but unfulfilling life for himself. When his bold best friend Greg reaps unexpected rewards for standing up for himself in a very public display, Matt's jealousy leads him to risk everything when he's confronted by two attackers.

Determined to be more like Greg, a split-second reaction brings astonishing changes to Matt's life--for better and for worse. Gaybash explores the boundaries of love and friendship and the unintended consequences of wanting to be somebody else.

Enjoy an evening of lively readings, character and neighborhood backstory, and Q&A. Free.

Gaybash is sold at Lakeview Rewired Cafe and Unabridged Bookstore in Lakeview, Bookie's in Beverly, Women and Children First in Andersonville, and Volumes Bookcafe in Wicker Park. Also check out David's Facebook, Instagram, and website.
