SAINT MARK'S CATHEDRAL - LETTER FROM BIRMINGHAM JAIL
On Tuesday, April 16, the 50th anniversary of the day that Martin Luther King, Jr. began writing his Letter from Birmingham Jail, participants worldwide will read King's let-ter in celebration. Saint Mark's will participate in a worldwide series of public readings of the letter. Saint Mark's will read the letter during Evening Prayer at 6:30 p.m. in McCaw Chapel on the west end of the Cathedral nave, the main worship space. Saint Mark's is located at 1245 10th Ave. E. and everyone is invited to join in the celebration.

Dr. King's letter was addressed to eight local clergymen, including the Episcopal Church's Bishop, whose public letter 'A Call for Unity' discouraged public demonstrations for civil rights 'directed and led in part by outsiders.' Dr. King's letter responded to their call to seek equality through local negotiations and the court system. His letter is considered a masterpiece of the civil rights movement.

Participants will host public readings from the Letter at various locations around the globe: libraries, museums, schools, universities, churches, synagogues, temples, work places, public parks, bookstores, street corners, coffee shops and anywhere people want to participate. This event is sponsored by the Birmingham Public Library. A list of world-wide readings is available at http://www.bplonline.org/programs/1963/Letter.aspx

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/.
