Joseph R.G. DeMarco: Reading and Book Signing (Tuesday, December 2 at 6pm)
Joseph R. G. DeMarco lives and writes in Philadelphia. His love of mystery led him to create Marco Fontana and the world he lives in which is strikingly similar to Philadelphia's gayborhood and yet, it isn't the same.

Several of his stories have been anthologized in the Quickies series published by Arsenal Pulp Press, in Men Seeking Men (Painted Leaf Press) and in Charmed Lives (Lethe Press). His essays have been published in anthologies including Gay Life, Hey Paisan!, We Are Everywhere, BlackMen WhiteMen, Men's Lives, Paws and Reflect, The International Encyclopedia of Marriage and Family, the Encyclopedia of Men and Masculinites, and The Gay and Lesbian Review Worldwide among others.

He has also written extensively for the gay/lesbian press and was a correspondent for The Advocate, In Touch, and Gaysweek. His work has been featured in The New York Native, the Philadelphia Gay News (PGN), Gay Community News, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Chroma, and a number of other publications.

In 1983, his PGN article "Gay Racism" was awarded the prize for excellence in feature writing by the Gay Press Association and was anthologized in Way Are Everywhere, Black Men, White Men, and Men's Lives. He was Editor-in-Chief of The Weekly Gayzette, Editor-in-Chief of New Gay Life, and has been an editor or contributing editor for a number of publications including Il Don Gennaro, and Gaysweek. Currently he is the Editor-in-Chief of Mysterical-E (www.mystericale.com) an online mystery magazine.

A long time activist in the gay/lesbian movement in Philadelphia, he participated in organizations which helped to make this city the gay-friendly place it is. Among other achievements, he is a founder of the gay community center which still thrives on Spruce Street.

We are thrilled to announce that DeMarco will join PAT@Giovanni's Room for a reading and book signing from 6-8pm. He will read from his latest title Death on Delancey and light refreshments will be served.

B. Proud is a fine arts photographer whose work has been exhibited nationally and internationally in several group and solo shows. Her bodies of work include "Alter Eros" and "First Comes Love." The latter project was recently published in book form as First Comes Love: Portraits of Enduring LGBTQ Relationships, which was recently launched at University of the Arts in Philadelphia, where she is an adjunct professor.

These two photographers will be visiting Giovanni's Room for a reading, discussion, and signing on November 25, at 5pm. Light refreshments will be served.
