Book: “The New Life” by Tom Crewe
In the summer of 1894, John Addington and Henry Ellis begin writing a book arguing that homosexuality, which is a crime at the time, is a natural, harmless variation of human sexuality. Though they have never met, John and Henry both live in London with their wives, Catherine and Edith, and in each marriage, there is a third party: John has a lover, a working-class man named Frank, and Edith spends almost as much time with her friend Angelica as she does with Henry. John and Catherine have three grown daughters and a long, settled marriage, over the course of which Catherine has tried to accept her husband’s sexuality and her own role in life; Henry and Edith’s marriage is intended to be a revolution in itself, an intellectual partnership that dismantles the traditional understanding of what matrimony means.
Shortly before the book is to be published, Oscar Wilde is arrested. John and Henry must decide whether to go on, risking social ostracism and imprisonment, or to give up the project for their own safety and the safety of the people they love.
Join SNMAL’s Film Club led by John Catania and Charles Ignacio from Chillfest.
The Film Club meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm. Founded in 2005 by John Catania and Charles Ignacio, Chillfest is dedicated to screening moving image art forms that express and celebrate the LGBTQIA+ experience, and to recognizing the creative work of LGBTQIA+ filmmakers.
The Club is limited to 15 participants who will select an LGBTQIA+ film, watch it on their own time, and meet monthly online via Zoom to discuss, critique, learn and reflect.
Admission is free, but you must be a SNMAL member to participate.
