July 16, 2017

Women and Words 

Overview  1-14 July 2017 

OMG Andi and Jove were outta control at GCLS last week and we just could not get it together to try to do things with y’all. SORRY! But here we are, with a 2-week roundup. Jove has pretty much gone feral (it happens sometimes) and Andi is pretty sure that GCLS wears everybody out, but omg it is way fun.  

1 July: Women and Wordster and reader-in-residence Erin Saluta came by and omg she went on the Olivia cruise to Alaska that Sapphire Books was doing! Here she talks about some lesfic books that deal with that topic. Maybe we can get her to post photos…

2 July: Author Sandy Stier came by and this is super awesome. She and her wife wrote a book together about California’s Prop 8 battle because they were plaintiffs in the case. This is their story, and they are TOTALLY GIVING AWAY A COPY! You still have time. We’ll do the drawing on the 21st. GET IN ON THIS. HERSTORY!

An article about them in People Magazine 

3 July: Author and Women and Wordster Lynette Mae tried to be a little more light-hearted, but because she’s Lynette Mae, there’s always a subtext that you learn from. She and her wife took their niece to NYC and had a great time. This is a short piece about that.

Lez Geek Out: Wonder Woman

July 12, 2017

Lez Geek Out! 

Show #11: Wonder Woman 

Andi and Lise rave about the movie Wonder Woman because…omg, you have to see it. Both were blown away by the strong women’s rep in all senses of the word, but they would like to have a movie with nothing but the Amazons. We didn’t get enough of them. MOAR Amazons, please. And definitely MOAR Wonder Woman. All of that. Much MOAR. 

Synposis:

Before she was Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, Diana meets an American pilot (Chris Pine) who tells her about the massive conflict that's raging in the outside world. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny.

Women and Words

overview 18-24 March 2017

Andi and Jove confess that they swear while fangirling over KD Williamson. They then realize that they really need to take a course on British political parties. (Which may or may not include swearing, depending on how well they do on the exams.)

 

18 Mar.: Author KD Williamson joined us to talk a bit about “happily ever after” and her forthcoming release, Between the Lines.
