Sappho’s Salon: A Provocative Night of Lesbian Diversions
Presents What Was I Thinking? Featuring Barrie Cole and Laura Stempel. Guest host: Linda Bubon
$7-$10 sliding fee includes food and wine
In the latest installment of our popular salon night for lesbians and their
friends presents What Was Thinking? Queer writers and performers Barrie Cole and Laura Stempel muse thoughtfully and hilariously on their past straight marriages. Cole’s play “Fruit Tree Backpack” was chosen as one of the best of 2010 by the Chicago Tribune. Her performance piece “Yearners” will appear in the forthcoming anthology Windy City Queer. Laura Stempel prefers to call her career eclectic rather than chaotic. She is and/or has been a writer, artist, scholar, teacher, store clerk, university administrator, grant writer, and some other things better left forgotten. Tonight’s salon will be guest-hosted by Women & Children First co-owner Linda Bubon. Proceeds benefit the artists and the Women’s Voices Fund.
