We'll be discussing highlights from our collection, including Mike Riegle's Prison Project through Gay Community News, and some of the materials recently donated by Boston's Black and Pink chapter.

Doors and reception at 6:00pm. Reading begins at 6:30.

Free and open to the public, but tickets are required.
