Join us to discuss our Spring reading selection, Trash by Dorothy Allison. The collection of short stories was published in 1988 and reprinted in 2002 with a new introduction, “Stubborn Girls and Mean Stories,” and a never-before-published story, “Compassion.” Trash won two Lambda Literary Awards as well as the American Library Association Prize for Lesbian and Gay Writing (www.dorothyallison.net). Trash is a precursor to Allison’s novel, Bastard Out of Carolina, which was a National Book Award finalist.
The Spring Quarter book discussions are cosponsored with Allies: Organization for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning and Ally (GLBTQA) Faculty & Staff. A limited number of books are available, particularly for students who wish to join the discussion.
