Please join us on August 8th as we lighten things up a bit and read the classic book Annie On My Mind, by Nancy Garden, first published in 1982, reissued for it's 25th anniversary. It's very reasonably priced at $8.99. If you buy the book at Politics and Prose, you will receive a 20% discount.

This groundbreaking book is the story of two teenage girls whose friendship blossoms into love and who, despite pressures from family and school that threaten their relationship, promise to be true to each other and their feelings.

The 25th Anniversary Edition features a full-length interview with the author by Kathleen T. Horning, Director of the Cooperative Children's Book Center. Ms. Garden answers such revealing questions as how she knew she was gay, why she wrote the book, censorship, and the book's impact on readers - then and now.

As always, please email us with your suggestions for future reading or for anything you think will improve the Lez Read experience! Hope to see you there!
