Drink a beer and hear Sarah Schulman read for Bookslut tonight

If you're a fan of great writing, especially that which happens to be penned by an out lesbian, then you should be familiar with Sarah Schulman. The prolific writer, activist and professor has been involved with covering her community since the 1980s, when she reported on the AIDS crisis in her home of New York City for The Village Voice. Since then, she's also written several books, including novels like Girls, Visions and Everything and Rat Bohemia which feature likable lesbian protagonists.

Tonight, Ms. Schulman is in town to read from her newest work, The Mere Future, at Hopleaf (5148 N. Clark St.) in Andersonville as part of the regular Bookslut Reading Series. The book, which was just released in stores from Arsenal Pulp Press, follows a lesbian couple in a new version of NYC, where rent is affordable and a new mayor is helping to make everyone feel safe. However, it isn't all that it seems to be, and the characters find out that what appears to be too good to be true, often is.
