By True Story: A Nonfiction Book Club
When: Sat, June 15, 2019 — 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM
Where: Old Town Books 104 South Union Street, Alexandria, VA 22314

True Story is Old Town Books’s brand new nonfiction book club! Join us for our inaugural meeting, where we will be reading and discussing The Stonewall Reader, edited by the New York Public Library and featuring a foreword by Edmund White. This conversation will be facilitated by Allison Punch (@allisonreadsdc (new window)).

We’ll be celebrating Pride month by honoring and discussing LGBTQ history. (…) “The Stonewall Reader gives us a richer, messier, more dangerous picture of the Stonewall uprising, its foreground, and aftermath. The book wonderfully reflects how revolutionary moments rarely get portrayed accurately through single voices, and Baumann has produced here a history worth revisiting again and again.” —Lambda Literary

True Story is free and open to the public; RSVP is appreciated. Take 15% off your in-store purchase of The Stonewall Reader by mentioning the book club.
