Quatrefoil Library Hosts Two Events
Black Pride Coffee Hour
A event on September 12, cosponsored by Quatrefoil Library and Twin Cities Black Pride Celebration, features coffee (10:30 AM); Jamaican-born writer G. Winston James reading from his most recent collection, Shaming the Devil (10:45 AM); participants in the recent Qlibrary Writing Workshop for Young Adults reading some of their work (11:14 AM); and Lisa C. Moore, founder and editor of RedBone Press, sharing some of her experiences in publishing, and reading some of her own work (11:31 AM). It takes place in the third floor conference room of the building where Quatrefoil Library is located.
On September 20, 2-3 PM, Quatrefoil Library will host a celebration to mark the publication of two new books on the history of local GLBT institutions, sponsored by the Friends of the Bill of Rights Foundation. History of Quatrefoil Library (The First 20 Years), by Adam Keim, traces the story of the library from its founding to its present incarnation as one of the largest GLBT lending libraries in North America. History of Minnesota Gay and Lesbian Legal Assistance (MnGALLA), by Dan Hanson and Richard Osborne, is the saga of an organized effort in the 1980s to have GLBT people needing legal services referred to supportive and sympathetic attorneys.
