STONEWALL NATIONAL MUSEUM & ARCHIVES
Stonewall Literary Book Club
Monday, October 12, 2020, from 6:30 pm – 8 pm
Sex Toys of the Gods by Chris McLaughlin
The Stonewall Literary Book Club meets the second Monday of each month and the book to be discussed is Sex Toys of the Gods by Chris McLaughlin (1997).
In a satirical look at Hollywood, Jason Dallin, a gay housesitter in Beverly Hills, works days at a video store and encounters single-mindedly ambitious actresses, stage mothers, and agents.
The Stonewall Library focuses on LGBTQ themed fiction, memoir and biography, mostly from the 20th and 21st centuries. Participants will be asked to read a new book each month and then collectively discuss it at their meetings. Members of the group will be encouraged to help select titles of books.
The Club is led by Clayton Littlewood. Born and raised in England, Clay now lives in Fort Lauderdale. A musician, playwright and actor, he is the author of two books Dirty White Boy: Tales of Soho (Cleis Press 2008) and Goodbye to Soho (DWB Press, 2012).
The Club is limited to 15 participants and is held on ZOOM. Participants may join by video or phone. Admission is free, but you must be a Stonewall Library member to participate. To sign up, please contact Executive Director Hunter O’Hanian.
