The ReadOut festival is back for another year, and this time they've lined up an excellent keynote speaker in Michèle Alexandre, the Dean of the College of Law at Stetson University. Alexandre is well-qualified to speak on the topic of strengthening lesbian voices through literature and law - she's the first African-American woman and LGBTQ person to serve as Dean at Stetson, and she's also authored several books on gender, sexuality, and civil rights. In her talk, Alexandre will explore how lesbians have been historically underrepresented in both literature and law, and what can be done to change that. It promises to be a fascinating and illuminating talk, so be sure to catch it if you can.
Every year, ReadOut brings the best lesbian authors together, and this year will be no exception.
ReadOut is a lesbian literature festival, a free event that celebrates the creativity and diversity of lesbian culture by presenting original works and authors with conferences, prerecorded author readings, interactive panels, and workshops that explore themes such as feminism. ReadOut's mission is to showcase literature by, for, and about lesbians.
