28 Adams Street, Brooklyn NY 11201

As Virginia Woolf put it in A Room of One’s Own: “Sometimes women do like women.” Bringing queer stories to a straight world is a task that often falls to LGBTQ writers. But should LGBTQ writers feel an obligation to write fiction inspired by their own experiences? This panel explores the burdens of representation and the role of personal and literary influences, showing how LGBTQ lives come into literature.

Featuring Zora del Buono, Antje Rávic Strubel, and Jürgen Bauer, Darryl Pinckney, and moderated by Geoff Mak of The Offing Magazine.

The event is free of charge and in English. RSVPs are required due to limited seating. Please register here.
