SEATTLE GAY & LESBIAN BOOK CLUB - THE GALLERY
The Seattle Gay & Lesbian Book Club meets every Wednesday from 6-7:15 p.m., at Seattle Area Support Groups Community Center (303 17th Ave. E. at E. Thomas St.). In April, the club is reading The Gallery by John Horne Burns.

One of the first novels to describe the psychological reality of the Second World War and achieve fame was John Horne Burns' The Gallery, written when he was thirty and published a year after he was discharged in 1947. Burns died six years later of alcoholism. Though he left behind two other failed novels and an unfinished fourth, The Gallery, is still in print 66 year later and still highly regarded. Taking place in Naples after the war, with a cast including both Americans and Italians, both straight and Gay, it's an intercon-nected story sequence linked by the Galleria Umberto, a meeting place for Gay hustlers.

All GLBTQ folks are welcome to participate in this FREE book club. For more information visit http://faculty.washington.edu/swittet/SGLBookClub/.
