Autostraddle has released its list of 30 new queer and feminist books to get excited about this fall, and it includes two of our own: Hustling Verse: An Anthology of Sex Workers' Poetry and I Hope We Choose Love.
We're thrilled that three of our titles have been named finalists for the Lambda Literary Awards: Death Threat by Vivek Shraya and Ness Lee; Hustling Verse: An Anthology of Sex Workers' Poetry, edited by Amber Dawn and Justin Ducharme; and Scorpio Rising: A Queer Film Classic by R. L. Cagle.
UPDATE (March 12/20): Due to health concerns over the Corornavirus, the Growing Room festival has been cancelled.
We're excited and proud that five Arsenal books have been nominated for Lambda Literary Awards, the preeminent writing prize for LGBTQ authors: Jonny Appleseed by Joshua Whitehead, Little Fish by Casey Plett, Sketchtasy by Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore, Sodom Road Exit by Amber Dawn, and The Tiger Flu by Larissa Lai.
A number of Arsenal authors will be present at Growing Room: A Feminist Literary Festival, which takes place in Vancouver between March 8 and 17, 2019.
