Saturday Night Social: the Night Belongs to M.E. Kerr

Deliver Us From Evie is the first book I ever read about LGBT+ issues. I snuck it out of my school library without signing my name (it was a small school!) and read it twice in a row, thrilled that there were whole books written about people like me for people my age (!!!). It's awesome that there are authors like M.E. … » 3/22/14 7:20pm 3/22/14 7:20pm

Saturday Night Social: the Night Belongs to Shirley Jackson

Sunday Sign Off: Carnival Season in Nice Is Bananas

The Catholic Church may have introduced a lot of not-so-awesome traditions, but give credit where credit is (partially) due: Carnival season is the best time of year. If you don't live in a place that will take part in the pre-Lenten debauchery, sucks for you. If you do live in such a place, congratulations and enjoy… » 2/16/14 6:30pm 2/16/14 6:30pm

Saturday Night Social: the Night Belongs to Ronna and Beverly

No new SNL tonight, but we're going to celebrate Saturday night anyway, and we're going to do it by giving the night to Ronna Glickman and Beverly Ginsberg, everyone's favorite Jewish mothers and best-selling authors of You'll Do a Little Better Next Time: a Guide to Marriage and Remarriage for Jewish Singles.… » 2/08/14 7:15pm 2/08/14 7:15pm
