The heat wave that's been criss-crossing the country has everyone fanning themselves like they're in a Mississippi revival tent sitting next to the snakes. Plus, there's no reprieve in sight--the weather forecast says it's going to stay hotter than a Danell Leyva ESPN photo spread. (It's okay, go ahead, check out the link. I'll wait...)
Well, there's nothing that will cool down those ESPN photos, but homo-centric does have a remedy for the weather: an evening of cool words by cool people. Come join us Thursday the 19th for homo-centric's Hot Summer Nights. This month we're featuring Larry Buhl, Andrea Lambert and Anthony Moses Sanchez.
Larry Buhl has written hundreds of magazine articles, created content for dozens of company web sites, five screenplays (with one in development), six teleplays, four stage plays, two manuscripts, a handful of poems, and scores of ads for products such as cars, garden tools, and panties. "Box o Crap," a young adult dark comedy about a brilliant foster teen with asperger's syndrome, will be published sometime between now and the end of his life (check back for details). It is, in his humble opinion, the best debut novel he's ever written. Larry lives with a dog and several anxieties.
Andrea Lambert is the author of Jet Set Desolate (Future Fiction London) and Lorazepam and the Valley of Skin / 730910-2155 (valeveil) She is co-curator of the Featherless reading series at Stories Books.
