Cuarenta y Nueve‘s 3rd and final book launch party is in New York City. Please join us to celebrate this beautiful coffee table book dedicated to the 49 lives lost in the Orlando Pulse nightclub massacre. Many of the 49 artistic contributors will attend. Readings, book signings, performers + celebrating the love and light of our rainbow community. Please join us on this ‘pride full’ occasion!

Cuarenta y Nueve means 49 in Spanish. This beautiful coffee table book is an artistic homage to the 49 lives lost on June 12, 2016, at the Pulse Nightclub massacre, in Orlando Florida. Writers of every discipline & genre, photographers, artists, and even an Executive Chef have come together to create this must have tribute. By 49 and for 49, Cuarenta y Nueve was the vision of (and curated by) best selling author Joie Lamar, who has also arranged for 100% of the proceeds to be donated to positive LGBTQ+ organizations, specifically Pride School Atlanta & GLAAD.
