Lunatic Lover Poet

 

The Bi Book Club meets on the second Thursday of each month to discuss bi-themed books and the issues they raise.

Dinner after nearby (so far, we always go to Village Den.)

On February 11, The Bi Book Club will discuss:

The Lunatic, the Lover, and the Poet by Myrlin A. Hermes

Shakespeare turned topsy turvy: a clever bisexual mashup between a sexy young Hamlet and characters from the sonnets. Very readable–no olde English. Note: The Sonnets, and Shakespeare, were bisexual.

Pick out some phrases, paragraphs or scenes that you’d like to discuss, give us your critique of the book: what worked, what didn’t, how was bisexuality represented? If you haven’t had the chance to read the book, come anyway because we read passages aloud for discussion. As usual, we’ll also be using the text as a jumping off point to further discussion of bisexual issues and personal experiences.

Suggested donation of $5 to benefit the Bureau. No one turned away for lack of funds.
