Katherine V. Forrest is Woman-Stirred   Leave a comment

This coming week on Thursday, March 10th, at 5:00, Merry Gangemi welcomes Katherine V. Forrest to Woman-Stirred Radio. Forrest is the iconic lesbian author of the Kate Delafield mystery series: Handcock Park (2004); Sleeping Bones (1999); Apparition Alley (1997); Liberty Square (1996); Murder by Tradition (1991); The Beverly Malibu (1989); Murder at the Nightwood Bar (1987); and Amateur City (1984). Forrest’s classic lesbian novels have enjoys an enduring readership and many are now being re-released by Bella Books and Spinster’s Ink.

At a time when lesbians began to claim space and visibility for their creative work, Forrest’s imaginative re-vision of the lesbian novels entertained and inspired thousands of lesbians everywhere, offering alternate narratives that explored lesbian-feminist alternatives to pathelogical portraits of lesbians depicted by books such as Radclyffe Hall’s Well of Loneliness (1928), and the plethora of lesbian pulp fiction published in the 1950s and 1960s.

So join us this Thursday, March 10th at 5pm (eastern) for an interesting and informative interview with Katherine V. Forrest.
WGDR broadcasts live every Thursday from 4 to 6pm (eastern) locally on WGDR Plainfield 91.1fm and online at WGDR.org.
