Event Details

The Lambda Literary Book Club meets the last Tuesday of each month (except December) in the Community Meeting Room at West Hollywood Library and highlights a heady mix of LGBT classics, unheralded gems, and new releases.

This month’s selection is Looking for Lorraine: The Radiant and Radical Life of Lorraine Hansberry by Imani Perry.

Lambda Literary review:

At 200 pages, Looking for Lorraine is the lengthiest Hansberry biography available today. It does more to evoke Hansberry personally than the other scholarship on her work… Until now, what has been largely missing from the body of work on Hansberry is, damningly enough, Hansberry herself… Not only was the world realizing that one of the most formidable voices in Civil Rights Era America was queer, they also saw the humor with which she approached the scarlet letter of her own lesbianism.

Please call or visit the library for the availability of a copy.
