And yay . . . I'll see you in Portland. I'm sure Shanna and I will arrive together and hope to take you out for drinks, talk you into drinks.



Please come to New York City!

Oh gosh--how about Madison, WI?

Though struggling, we still have a few independent bookstores and two long-standing institutions of things bookish and erotic: A Room of One's Own Feminist Bookstore and A Woman's Touch. Ooo, and Cherry Pop Burlesque, a performance group that does good home-grown burlesque (tho' I'm not sure when they last performed). Perhaps something could be coordinated between all those entities?

No good ideas about funding, though I sort of remember that when Alison Bechdel was promoting her book she came through Madison on a trip whose expenses were paid for collectively by feminist bookstores in Minneapolis, Madison, Milwaukee, and Chicago.

Good luck and good work!


Regarding BAE readings in NYC:

Two possibilities, both of which encompass CLEVER FUNDING IDEAS *and* the WHERE question...

I tried posting before but was blocked as spam, maybe because I had included URLs; now I've omitted them. Mr. Google will take you right there:

1) The Museum of Sex. 233 Fifth Avenue @ 27th Street. Seems like a natural match to me...

Of course I cannot speak for them but I'd bet they'd be thrilled to have you.


This is a great series -- maybe the coolest show in town -- hosted by Paul Holdengraeber at the main New York Public Library on Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street.

If you peruse their past programs you'll get an idea of the spectrum of presentations -- very eclectic offerings -- from Aline Kominsky-Crumb and Robert Crumb to Edmund White to Jan Morris to the Hungry Marching Band and beyond.

You could surely fill their Celeste Bartos Forum. And, I get the impression that they have a budget.

Besides LIVE FROM THE NYPL being a reading venue for BAE 2008, I could envision the host doing an interview with you on stage where you could speak your mind openly as to the current state of erotica and publishing, et cetera, should you be so inclined.

Perhaps worth a look...

Good luck!


If you're probing the heart of the land The Kinsey Institute (Bloomington, Indiana) might be worth exploring. Their upcoming events (of both academic and cultural interest) include a film screening, an exhibition and a lecture. Perhaps a funding source as well? A search of their online library (connected with Indiana University) returns 22 of your offerings. That's a start, I would think...
