Let's read... Trash: Stories by Dorothy Allison
• What we'll do This month we'll we be reviewing Trash. Candace will be hosting and Nancy will be leading the discussion. "Trash, Allison's landmark collection, laid the groundwork for her critically acclaimed Bastard Out of Carolina, the National Book Award finalist that was hailed by The New York Times Book Review as "simply stunning...a wonderful work of fiction by a major talent." In addition to Allison's classic stories, this new edition of Trash features "Stubborn Girls and Mean Stories," an introduction in which Allison discusses the writing of Trash and "Compassion," a never-before-published short story. First published in 1988, the award-winning Trash showcases Allison at her most fearlessly honest and startlingly vivid. The limitless scope of human emotion and experience are depicted in stories that give aching and eloquent voice to the terrible wounds we inflict on those closest to us. These are tales of loss and redemption; of shame and forgiveness; of love and abuse and the healing power of storytelling." Hope to see you there! • What to bring This is our monthly potluck and book review. Bring whatever you feel like sharing. We also ask that everyone bring a few dollars to help offset the cost of Meet-up event hosting. • Important to know

    What we're about

    Public Group

    If you are tired of telling yourself, "I have a hard time sitting down and reading the latest books on the bestseller list or books people have recommended to me or that I've found of interest, bought and are still sitting on my shelf", join our group. Not only will you read a plethora of books that you might never have read, you'll also get a chance to discuss them with other lesbians! This group is for women who love women. The goal of this group is to discuss books of all genres (with an emphasis on women's or lesbian themes) and to meet other lesbians in a fun, safe, and social environment.
